DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-01
Re: Installation experience (was Re: Installing from SCSI cdrom)
:This box is a dual PIII with 2 SCSI drives and 2 SCSI cdroms.
:The DragonFly install cd won't find the root FS when booted from a SCSI
:Solution: I booted from the FreeBSD 4.2 Live CD (the second one).
:Entered 'Fixit' mode and mounted the DragonFly cdrom that I inserted in
:my second cdrom drive. The slice I had freed for DragonFly happened to
:be the third one on the first disk (da0s3), but the dev entries aren't
Thanks for the README fixes, Miguel.
I'm sure there is some stupid-simple reason for why DFly isn't finding
the SCSI CDRom root. This would be a good bug for someone to track
down! I need to focus on a number of panics reported by David Rhodus
and get back to the IPC work.
:Finish the install and reboot. There's a trivial typo in the README (see
:attached patch) in the supfile path, no biggie.
:I've rebuilt world and kernel, and typing this in Mozilla Thunderbird.
:This works so well that DFly is now my default desktop OS. Congrats to
:Matt and the rest for making such a nice OS.
:Btw, there used to be a thread about the new install program, has anyone
: started working on it? Sounds like an interesting project to me.

Nothing serious has been done yet in regards to the new installer.
