Description rkalnins 1999-10-22 00:57:54 UTC
The new boot*.img files for utilizing the updates disk are all the hard driver/CD boot.img. The bootnet and pcmcia images are jsut copies of the hd/cd install image. OOpps...
Comment 1 matt.samsonoff 1999-10-22 14:15:59 UTC
And "text updates", as specified in the Errata Advisory, just plain doesn't do ANYTHING. These disks are completely broken.
Comment 2 adam.atkinson 1999-10-22 14:23:59 UTC
"linux updates" doesn't seem to work either. I never get asked for the updates disk. After a line mentioning "/sbin/loader" appears, the cdrom whirs for a while and then nothing happens. There's another fault mentioning /sbin/loader, but that seems to predate the new install disks.
Comment 3 Jay Turner 1999-10-22 14:37:59 UTC
We are aware of a race condition when booting the boot.img image with the cdrom in the drive. If this is happening to you (and therefore the installer is hanging at the /sbin/loader line) then just boot without the cdrom in the drive and then when prompted by the installer, insert the cdrom. Yes, we are also aware that all three boot images are actually the same thing (copies of the boot.img file) We are currently posting new updates on the FTP server and those changes should propagate pretty quickly. If someone is seeing other issues, then please let me know (email@example.com) and I will take a look. ------- Additional Comments From 10/25/99 19:17 ------- text updates doesn't display anything, but if I replace the boot disk with the updates disk and press return, then the update disks loads. The first time I tried this it didn't, but I though it was a problem with my disk, and after I made a new one with dd, it worked. The CD was in the drive. Also, the 2nd errata mentions :044 in the main text of the message for the updates disk, even though it should be :045. The checksums at the bottom of the correct message have the correct filename.
