I've now set up a Hurd installation using crosshurd 1.7.42 from Debian GNU/kFreeBSD (sid), but have come across the following problems: * crosshurd didn't install a kernel (I've copied GNU Mach across from my qemu image, so this is no longer a problem) * /dev is empty except for MAKEDEV, which returns 'Pipe call failed' on line 10 if I try to run it * trying to run /native-install fails at trying to write to /etc/passwd, saying it's on a read-only filesystem (I can't use settrans to fix this because there's nothing in /dev, as above) The above problems occur whether or not I use single-user mode (passing -s to GNU Mach), and whether or not I run 'export TERM=mach' first. My gut feeling tells me these three things are probably related to a common cause, but I don't know enough about crosshurd to know what that might be. Crosshurd didn't return an error when I ran it, it just doesn't seem to have created a usable Hurd system. Has anyone seen the above errors before, or does anyone know what the cause might be?
