_almost_ done. Either run "native-install" under the hurd (probably "rm
/dev/[a-z]* /servers/crash /servers/socket/?" prior), or run the following
script. This is NECESSARY, or your translators are not set up.
echo I am just checking if your filesystem is really writeable.
fsysopts / --writable
# Set up standard passive translators
echo Now I set up the translators. If you get Operation not supported
echo errors, you have forgotten to set the file system owner to \"hurd\"!
/bin/settrans /servers/socket/1 /hurd/pflocal
/bin/settrans /servers/socket/2 /hurd/pfinet
/bin/settrans /servers/crash /hurd/crash
# Setup crucial devices
echo The next job is to setup device files.
/bin/sh ./MAKEDEV std ptyp ptyq
