Problems installing NetBSD 1.1

Problems installing NetBSD 1.1

Post by Nick Hudso » Fri, 10 May 1996 04:00:00

I'm trying to install NetBSD 1.1 on a HP Vectra VL with a 3com
3C509-COMBO network card. The problem I'm getting is that the
computer just locks up. I've tried several times now and it locks
up at different stages of the install process every time. The
furthest I've got is half way through an 'Extract' of base11.

Has anyone got any ideas? I'm sorry if I'm being vague, its because I
don't quite know what information is relevant.

1. Problems with Install floppies for NetBSD 1.1

When trying to install the kernelcopy and inst floppies on an i386 I
get random "fd0a - soft error reading ..." messages at various stages of
the process. It does not seem to adversely affect the installation but
just that they appeared at all made me somewhat apprehensive. Has anyone
else had this problem? Is it normal? Does anyone know what causes it?
Is it possibly caused by a slow floppy drive? Any insight into this
would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
