Sparc install problems

Post by Gerald Heini » Wed, 05 Jan 2000 04:00:00

Hi all,

Im trying to install NetBSD on my SparcStation 10 without any luck so
I downloaded both boot-141.fs and syboot-141.fs from a NetBSD mirror,
ddd them onto a floppy and typed boot floppy

I got

Track 0 reported when on track 2

although this floppy later turned out to be defective.
I got another one and tried both files and got

Track 0 not reported

What am I doing wrong?




1. Sparc install problem

I've been happily running OpenBSD on my Intel machines
for some time now, so I decided to also stick it onto
my SparcStation 5. The install went smoothly, but when
I reboot the root partition gets mounted read only -
and stays that way ...

I tried reinstalling and a different partitioning scheme,
but to no avail. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Just for the record, my system is:

SS5 110Mhz
2.1Gb Conner drive (sd0)
1.0Gb Seagat drive (sd1)
