Okay, gang, I've made progress on getting this uVAX II up, but
still not there...
I've got my disk (rd54) partitioned and so forth and the tar
files untarred etc. I went to do a MAKEDEV std as the FAQ says and it
just sort of 'went away and never came back'. I don't know what the
problem was. I was able to reboot the miniroot on swap and do a
MAKEDEV ra0 and MAKEDEV mt0 (FAQ erroneously says tms0, can we fix that?).
Tried rebooting and I get a 'bad format' when I try to boot the kernel.
Rebooted from the minroot on swap, ftped Ragge's new kernel and cp-ed it
to the new root. Reboot, and same problem, 'bad format'. I discover
after rebooting from the miniroot on swap that the kernel is getting
deleted when this happens; the file is there but it's 0 bytes. Tried
cp-ing it again, same problem. Tried cp-ing the miniroot over it and
rebooting, same problem still.
