unable to boot and run `uname -a`
Landisk (at least the boot.fs) is no longer booting, seems unable to find the kernel:

  NetBSD/landisk ustarfs Primary Bootstrap

  >> NetBSD/landisk Boot, Revision 1.0 (Sat Apr 27 22:00:29 UTC 2019)
  Press return to boot now, any other key for boot menu
  booting hd0a:netbsd - starting in 0
  9362892read section: Input/output error
  boot: hd0a:netbsd: Input/output error
  booting hd0a:netbsd.gz
  open netbsd.gz: No such file or directory 
  boot: hd0a:netbsd.gz: No such file or directory
  booting hd0a:netbsd.old - starting in 2

A current build from mid-March was working, re-tested NetbSD-8 and it boots as well.
build or download landisk from current, write boot.fs to a Compact Flash card, attempt to boot.

This issue appears to have been caused by a bad CF Card. latest snapshots are working.



State-Changed-From-To: open->closed
State-Changed-When: Wed, 01 May 2019 09:32:07 +0000
Latest builds working with a new CF Card.
