Hi I'm looking for some help regarding my 5.1 installation
I have been playing with FreeBSD for some years now, with long pauses, and always come back to it, again and a again, following it's evolution the best I can, and also just to having fun with it and learn something new in the presses. I'm far from being a expert, and am lost half the time but still have fun with it. I finally decided that it was time to replace my old novel 3.12 with a 5.1 FreeBSD The machine I'm using is an old mmx 233 with onboard ide and 65mb memory I had a 30gb Maxtor and a cd on it for the initial installation. Install went well, no problems. After moving the files form my very old novel server, over to the FreeBSD server, I decided I needed to add a 80gb disk. After installing the disk, the motherboard controller would not recognize the new disk. I next added a pci ida/ata controller from Maxtor, and disabled the onboard ida controller. With the old 30gb as master and the new 80gb as slave, and the CDROM as a master, I started the machine. The kernel found the new controller, but when init takes over, thinks started to fall apart fast. It seems that init is unable to deal with the controller change. After manually mounting the devices, I can get to the machine as single user with no write rights, I need to find out if, and how, I can chance the fstab's, and if there are any other config's that I have to worry about, in general, what do I, or can I do???? or, Do I have to reinstall allover again? I still have the novel machine running on the network so all is not lost yet. Hope you have some ideas for my!! 0 0 <> \__/ Regards Yngvi Gretarsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
