Instead of doing a fresh install I really want to see why on earth someone would buy such a basic Indigo (R3k, 32mb ram, LG1, two hard drives).
I'm currently running a serial console through a regular mac serial cable to a Duo 2300c with Zterm.

Woow. This thing is totally bungled up.
I'm not sure if I'm facing one single and massivly bad problem or if I'm suffering two problems (bungled serial port/console settings and an unhealthy set of original disks)
EDIT: Garbage console was a bad serial cable
Any ideas? I won't be able to get access to a CD drive to boot a 5.3 disc for a few days.

Try using "cu -l/dev/tty.usbserial -s9600" instead of that Zterm to make things simple,
also you may want to try another usb-rs232 converter, I've seen even some sort of PL2302 which didn't work well with my O2's for example.

Uh, I'm running on the Mac OS. I'm also not using a USB serial adapter because the DUO has no USB
I'll try another cable if I can find one. It's as if the characters are reaching the system but the return echo is getting garbled.

Turns out it was just a bad cable so the garbled console is fixed. Back to the system.

Okay, so it's still having troubles with /usr and thus I can't get into single user mode.

Edited: I can boot to sash and I can read partitions 0 and 6 using ls at least so the data is there.

I would try to run fsck on /root/usr from the miniroot.

1. fsck manually and fix problems
2. Do what it says: set the date. If the current date and the filesystem date are too far apart it will *keep* checking ...

Spent the evening huddled around the console after booting the miniroot from the 5.3 cd and I couldn't get fsck to find any problems. Yes, I also set the clock.
I could unmount dks0d1s6 and check it but fsck didn't report any issues. I was not however able to unmount and check dksod1s0 for obvious active miniroot reasons.

What date are you setting? Base IRIX 5.3 has Y2k issues, so perhaps try it with a 1999 date?

Yep, but think about the likely reason I remember this problem ;) .

I can't remember what the error that came up when I was trying a blank install, but it was a little confusing.
