I had a 4gig drive laying around that I wanted to use for a router, so I
installed the latest (from about 1.5 weeks ago) from the 5.x distrubutions.
I added ipfw/natd/dummynet to the kernel file and did a full buildworld,
buildkernel. I rebooted after install kernel, everything seemed normal, did
install world/mergemaster, rebooted. Right now, I have an 'ok' prompt, it
appears after the 'Press enter to start booting immediately, or hit any
other key to <do something else>' option and it states it cannot find kernel
My guesses are that either I got a really bad batch of sources, I performed
a buildworld wrong (though I did double check my steps with the handbook
first), or my hard drive picked a really unusual place to die.
It is a new clean install so it wouldn't be a huge issue to reinstall, but
if it is hardware, I will need to replace the drive before doing this again.
Any thoughts on how to determine the problem?
Thanks for any tips.
