Okay.., I've just scripted the output from "make installworld" at step 15 of the migration guide, and its failed as before.
I've got the output redirected to a file: /var/tmp/installworld.log, however, I'm in single-user mode, and nothing works: ls, mount, etc.., how do I get this file off this system so that I can post it to the list for assistance?
At this point, I can (manually) show the last bit of the failed attempt for make installworld:
install -s -o root -g wheel -m 555 test /bin
install -o root -g wheel -m 444 test.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1
pid 45090 (sh), uid 0: exited on signal 10 (core dumped)
*** Signal 10
Stop in /usr/src/bin/test.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/src.
*** Error code 1
I'd appreciate some help with this.., If there is a way to get the log file off (to floppy, for instance), I'd like to post it so that folks cleverer than I could take a look, please.
Thanks for the time.
