I am trying to upgrade my system from 4.7RELEASE to 4.8STABLE. I have
followed the instructions from the manual:
Right now, I am on step 21.4.8 Reboot into Single User Mode. I have compiled
my new kernel, and I was trying to reboot into single user mode to test the
new kernel. When I do this, I get the following error message:
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/da0s1a
no such device 'da'
ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp
Root mount failed: 6
I don't understand what is going on here. THe device /dev/da0s1a exists. I
compiled the new kernel using the same kernel config file I used to compile
my 4.7RELEASE kernel. My old kernel boots the system just fine.
The computer is a Compaq Proliant 1600. The SCSI device is detected as
follows during boot:
sym0: <875> port 0x2000-0x20ff mem
0xc6fff000-0xc6ffffff,0xc6ffdf00-0xc6ffdfff irq 9 at device 9.0 on pci1
sym0: No NVRAM, ID 7, Fast-20, SE, parity checking
da0 at sym0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
In my kernel configuration file I have this line
device sym # NCR/Symbios Logic (newer chipsets)
Like I said, everything worked fine in 4.7RELEASE. Is there problems with
the driver for this device in 4.8?
Can anyone help?
