NetBSD 1.3

NetBSD 1.3

Post by Aaron Bran » Sun, 12 Apr 1998 04:00:00



I am having problems setting up Netbsd 1.3 to work on my A1200.

Everything goes fine until it comes to dearchiving the various sets
base.tgz goes fine and the when it hits comp.tgz it starts to complain that
it is out of space.

According to the install document I need

root: 20M
user: 95M
swap: 2M for every M of ram
local: up to you

I have it set up as

root: 40M
user: 259M
swap: 33M
local: no local partition

It worked fine for netbsd1.2

I subsequently wiped netbsd1.2 (nothing important in /etc anyway)
And did the *install* procedure for netbsd1.3 (not upgrade) as obviously my
netbsd1.2 setup was removed intentionally by me.

Can anyone suggest what the problem is.

I am going to try later to see what happens when I create a small local
partition.

Wild guess:

When the 1.3 installation script asked you for additional partitions, you named
what you called "user:" above different from "/usr". This would cause all
the installation to go onto the root partition... only  a very minimal system
would fit there... (I once installed NetBSD on a i386 machine with 10 MB
swap and 30 MB / , as a serial line router, but I only installed base and etc).
