Problem with inst in miniroot

Unread postby jessedewaard » Thu Oct 20, 2016 1:15 pm

Hi, i am trying to install IRIX 4.0.5 on a Indigo R3k with a 200mb harddisk.
I am currently stuck in the miniroot because Inst wants to install all the packages in / instead of in /root and /root/usr
I mounted /root/usr manually because Inst complained it could not mount /dev/usr (it was /dev/dsk/dks0d1s6).

So my question is how can i force Inst to install in the correct folders?


Got it working after restarting and mounting the /root/usr before doing anything else
