One can load kernel modules from the fixit cdrom, but as far as i remember this requires some manipulations. What i do is, from the fixit prompt: chroot /mnt2 to go to the full system available on the cdrom under /mnt2. But then required things are missing, so i do further: mount -t devfs devfs /dev because access to /dev is frequently required, and for commodity set -o emacs (to have shell history and editing) export PAGER=more (to be able to access man pages) After that one has a more or less standard environment. Sometimes one needs a writable filesystem, for example for accessing internet (dhclient, resolv.conf, etc.) mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmp does that. It would be nice to have a shell script on the fixit cdrom doing similar things automatically when one accesses fixit. In your case i suspect appropriate kernel modules were not loaded and commands failed silently. -- Michel TALON _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
