Linuxulator question, boot loader oddity
I'm running 2.8 now and it looks great so far. I setup linuxulator
for the first time yesterday as follows:
- added linux_load=yes to /boot/loader.conf
- added linux_enable=yes to /etc/rc.conf
- pkg_radd suse_base
- mount -t linprocfs none /usr/pkg/emul/linux/proc
Did I miss anything? I've only tested it with java and that works fine.
Here's the weird part. After I added the line linux_load=yes to
/boot/loader.conf, the machine failed to come up and landed me at the
mountroot prompt. That's when I noticed that loader.conf looked like
I tried changing the mountfrom line to:
This fixed the root mount. So, I'm wondering how my system was able
to boot before I made this change and why did simply adding a line to
loader.conf cause it to break?
