I've attempted to install NetBSD on a decstation with
I've tried numerous permutations of the directions, but what
I think should have worked was:
I put the disk on a decstation 5000/120 running ULTRIX 4.3.
I compiled disklabel with gcc 2.5.8, moved bootrz and rzboot
to /usr/mdec and ran disklabel as such:
./disklabel -B /dev/rrz3c
(some warning about no disk label)
./disklabel -B -R /dev/rrz3c rz24
Now, if I run ./disklabel -r /dev/rrz3c it looks good. I then
did the dd:
dd if=./miniroot of=/dev/rrz3c seek=16
the disklabel is still in tact. So, I didn't clobber it.
However, the resultant disk is NOT bootable on a decstation
5000/133 or a 2100. Anyone get this beast to work?
A friend tried labeling the disk from a macintosh running NetBSD
but that didn't work either. Both machines will boot ULTRIX and
I'm certain I have the boot rom environment variable set correctly.
