Intallation problems


While installing the GNU/hurd, following Neil's great manual, I 
encountered some problems.  I solved them, but they should be fixed 
anyway, I think :-)

First of all, mke2fs used a block size of 1024 on my fairly small disk.  
This caused many hangups and I couldn't find out why.  From
irc://opennet/#hurd I found that this is a known bug in the filesystem
driver.  So I guess this is being worked on.  In the meantime, I suggest
that it is mentioned in Neil's manual.

Second, native-install crashed i on the second pass with the error:

The last step is to create /etc/fstab
./native-install: line 191: unexpected EOF while looking for matching ``'
./native-install: line 207: syntax error: unexpected end of file

I solved this by changing line 162 in the file.
It started with:

rootpart=fsysopts / | perl

while it should start with:

rootpart=`fsysopts / | perl

I shall now see if the rest of the installation and using the hurd works.  
If it doesn't, I'll probably send a message to this list.
