Soekris net5501-70

  • I recently bought a Soekris net5501-70 board.  Installed PFsense to a 8G cf card using VMware because nano sucks (package installs is mainly the problem).  I keep getting this error when I boot and all I want to do is change the location that pf thinks it is booting from.

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/da0s1a

    Manual root filesystem specification:
      <fstype>:<device>  Mount <device>using filesystem <fstype>eg. ufs:da0s1a
      ?                  List valid disk boot devices
      <empty line="">      Abort manual input

    mountroot> ufs:ad0s1a
    Trying to mount root from ufs:ad0s1a

    / p _
    / Sense


    Welcome to pfSense 1.2.3-RELEASE…

    I have to manually type it in every time for the path.</empty></fstype></device></device></fstype>

  • Have you edited /etc/fstab to fix the default entry?

  • Thanks jasonlitka, that worked
