Re: A couple of bugs in the installation process
There are lots of people here who would be happy to do their darnedest
to help you resolve your problems, but at this point, all we can say
is "Works for me". We have NO idea what you are running for
hardware...this makes troubleshooting basicly impossible.
Describe your machine, your SCSI card, your main board, etc. One
other user has reported some serious problems with a delay waiting for
the IDE devices to time out, this appeared to be a problem with his
main board, we pretty well narrowed it down to that, but
unfortunately, we couldn't fix it, so you may be stuck either living
with it or replacing the main board (or perhaps, using an IDE drive --
though I don't know what happens if you put a single IDE drive on this
As for not recognizing your CD-ROM, this may have to do with the
interface -- what kind of CD-ROM is it? SCSI? Again, we are back to
"What controller". IDE? Is the channel it is attached to enabled?
Non-IDE? OpenBSD doesn't support most (any?) non-SCSI, non-IDE
Give us some info, let's see if we can help you out.
