DragonFly bugs List (threaded) for 2003-12
RE: DF mountroot
Looking at it now...
cpdup / to /tmp/hd
I think you are missing /dev, /var and maybe even a properly set-up
/tmp. As they are mounted from seperate (mfs)
partitions with the cd boot $cpdup / /tmp/hd won't copy them as well.
See /README on the cd.
Max, you correctly diagnosed the problem. I was missing the contents
of /dev. All that was needed was to boot from the DF CD and cpdup
/dev to /tmp/hd/dev. Now DragonFly boots perfectly from the hard
Never having used cpdup before, I failed to notice that it does not
cross boundaries, which is logical.
Failing to "mountroot ufs:/dev/ad0s1a" could have indicated to me to
check to see if the device node was there to mount... but no error
message was given by mountroot, and all of the other files were
present on the hard drive ( including /var/* and /tmp ).
Now all I need is the nge ethernet driver from FreeBSD.
