Hello, this is my first post on this forum but I've had my 3100 for nearly 2 years and been through just about all the ROMs except OpenBSD so I thought I'd give it a try because I like X and want to use a 'native' system rather than a bolt-on or cut-down system.

I have decided to use 4.1 for now and I'm using this method to load the installer, and I've put the install sets on a CF card as I dont have an ethernet card for my Z (wireless only)

# insmod zbsdmod.o
# cp bsd.rd /proc/zboot

Everything seems to go OK. I get to calibrate the X screen and invited to reboot. At this point I copy the config file to /mnt/mtdflash2/pcmcia/config and reboot. The reboot gets as far as this, then gets stuck in a loop of getty messages.

init: kernel security level changed from 0 to 1
init: can't exec getty 'usr/libexec/getty for port /dev/ttyC0: no such file or directory
init: can't exec getty 'usr/libexec/getty for port /dev/ttyC1: no such file or directory

I've been through this twice with the same results. Any ideas what I can do?

I am not sure if it helps or is relevant, but either swapping the internal MD with a CF or installing everything in one big root partition seems to alleviate the resume problem.

Don't try and build your system from source with the -O3 flag as the gcc/cc compiler won't work afterwards. Just thought I'd share that tiny bit of info. smile.gif
