Talk:Installing 4.3 BSD+NFS Wisconsin Unix
Trouble using this recipe
I'm having some trouble setting up 4.3BSD with this recipe.
First, when I boot from the miniroot linked in the articles, I get a different kernel:
VAX 11/780 simulator V4.0-0 Beta git commit id: 49911369 loading ra(0,0)boot Boot : ra(0,0)vmunix 290188+89696+102928 start 0x12f8 4.3 BSD UNIX #3: Mon Dec 29 11:54:56 CST 1986 tadl@brie:/usr/src/bsd/4.3/sys/GENERIC real mem = 8388608 SYSPTSIZE limits number of buffers to 134 avail mem = 7136256 using 134 buffers containing 524288 bytes of memory
Note tadl@brie... and the timestamp differs from what is written in the recipe.
Then, the devices do not get created correctly, since MAKEDEV spits out a syntax error:
# sh MAKEDEV ra1 mknod: ra1a: File exists mknod: ra1b: File exists mknod: ra1c: File exists mknod: ra1g: File exists mknod: rra1a: File exists mknod: rra1b: File exists mknod: rra1c: File exists mknod: rra1g: File exists syntax error MAKEDEV: chgrp: not found MAKEDEV: chmod: not found
The error is somewhere in the if [ $name != hk ] line, I think, but it is easily overcome by manually creating the required device nodes.
The real issue I have, however, is when formatting ra0h:
# newfs ra0h ra81 write error: 759667 wtfs: Invalid argument
This is related to the disktab I guess (wrong kernel? wrong newfs executable?). Running newfs with a different disk type works (but gives less space of course):
# newfs ra0h ra80 Warning: inode blocks/cyl group (54) >= data blocks (12) in last cylinder group. This implies 98 sector(s) cannot be allocated. /dev/rra0h: 111104 sectors in 256 cylinders of 14 tracks, 31 sectors 56.9Mb in 16 cyl groups (16 c/g, 3.56Mb/g, 1504 i/g) super-block backups (for fsck -b#) at: 32, 7008, 13984, 20960, 27936, 34912, 41888, 48864, 55840, 62816, 69792, 76768, 83744, 90720, 97696, 104672,
