1. BUG bsd installer for mac causing a bus crash on se/30
I hope this is the right group to be posting too. If not, could someone
tell me about specific groups to handle newbie questions and bug reports for
m68k? A listserv perhaps?
I have just come across bsd for the mac and am quite impressed by what I
have read concerning its power ;) So, I decided to grab it off an ftp site
(netbsd.rmit.edu.au). I downloaded everything as *.hqx and translated it
with stuffit expander. No problems there. One interesting point, I notice
the documentation calls these files gzipped, but when I expanded the *.hqx
files they had no *.gz extension. And they are type document in the mac
view name option.
Should these files be binary or ascii? Did I do something wrong?
I read the documentation called INSTALL. I ran the BSD-1.0 installer and it
started its initialization. Assigning scsi went fine. Than I got a bus
error and my system bombed :( It bombed right after asking for a scsi id to
initialize and I selected scsi 0 (internal drive) and selected format. The
error is reproducible on both my external and internal drives.
Any ideas what the problem is???
Some info about my system:
I have a mac se/30 with 8mb physical ram and an expansion card for an
external monitor. I have ramdoubler running, but the crash occurred even
with ramdoubler removed. I have 2 hard drives and a floptical drive. The
scsi ids are scsi 0 for 170 meg internal, scsi 3 for 1 gig external drive,
and scsi 5 for floptical drive.
The external drive is my usual boot drive and is the last device on my scsi
chain. It is properly terminated. The floptical drive is usually turned
off. I also have a system folder on my internal drive.
Any idea why I would get a bus error? I seem to get this error alot when I
using my PPP software and internet programs.
