Re: Problems booting openbsd3.1 on wd1a
It probably _is_ a large drive problem. If I understand correctly, you
have 2 harddisks with an OpenBSD installation (or other os?) on both of
If so, and both harddisks are partitioned as one big slice (which is _not_
a good idea!), you're very lucky your fist disk boots. But when you
recompile a kernel on your fist disk, you'll have problems!
To solve this, divide your disk into smaller slices, and make sure that
'/' is in the beginning of the disk. And since '/' doesn't have to be very
big (mine currently uses 25M of 64M), it'll be entirily below the 8G (or
504M on old pc's) boundary.
