MacBSD problems on LC520

MacBSD problems on LC520

Post by Nigel Pears » Tue, 06 Aug 1996 04:00:00



        I finally got around to FTPing MacBSD 1.1 to try and install it on
my LC520 (for those who don't know, its an LCIII with an inbuilt screen, CD
and stereo speakers).

        My problems happened before I even got the kernel installed! (i.e.
while running mkfs and MacBSD Installer Utility 1.0)

After creating appropriate partitions using 7.5.3's HD SC Setup program;

Under 7.1: Both mkfs and Installer do not allow "OK" button to be clicked.

Under 7.5.3: mkfs gives "Error on SCSIRead(), #5", but seems to format OK.
Then, the installer utility gives the same error after "Mounting partition
'A' as /". I continued, installed netbsd11 OK, but then got a hang half way
thru installing base11:

-r-x... /bin/sh
sz8192.

Unimplemented trap

Restart

        Anyone got any ideas, or know if anyone is still supporting these
two utilities? (Please e-mail, as our newsfeed is flaky)
