Root mount error



  • Hi,

    This morning I decided to give 2.0 a try, I took a 4GB Microdrive I had and I loaded the 4GB image with physdiskwrite, in fact I did that last week and it took 3 hours to complete… The this morning I removed the actual compact flash from my soekris and I tried to boot this new image, without success.

    I receive that error

    ROOT MOUNT ERROR:
    If you have invalid mount options, reboot, and first try the following from
    the loader prompt:
    
         set vfs.root.mountfrom.options=rw
    
    and then remove invalid mount options from /etc/fstab.
    
    Loader variables:
    vfs.root.mountfrom=ufs:/dev/ufs/pfsense0
    vfs.root.mountfrom.options=rw
    
    Manual root filesystem specification:
      <fstype>:<device>  Mount <device> using filesystem <fstype>
                           eg. ufs:/dev/da0s1a
                           eg. cd9660:/dev/acd0
                           This is equivalent to: mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /
    
      ?                  List valid disk boot devices
      <empty line="">       Abort manual input
    
    mountroot></empty></fstype></device></device></fstype>
    

    After a search I found that I'm not the only one, but there are not a lot of us having the same problem. I've read that I should try to install 1.2.3, then upgrade, that's I'm doing right now, let's see when it finishes writing the image in about 3 hours…

    I have a Soekris NET5501 I'm using a genuine Hitachi 4GB Microdrive, which is the first time I'm trying to use in the Soekris though. I don't have any other compactflash, but the one that hold my working 1.2.2 config.

    Any though about that problem?

  • like your system tells you, give it at the prompt "mountroot>" ufs:/dev/da0s1a and press enter.
    After the complete boot you have to change in /etc/fstab the entry from your root to ufs:/dev/da0s1a. After a new boot it should work right.
    Sometimes ufs:/dev/ad0s1a is the right mountpoint.



  • It's not working …

    Like my system tell me ufs:/dev/da0s1a is an example... I didn't expect it to work, but I tried it...

    I'm looking at my 1.2.2 setup and the mount point are /dev/ufs/pfSense I guest that have changed in 2.0 and even in 1.2.3, because that one doesn't boot either on my Soekris.

    Here is the dmesg taken from my working pfSense 1.2.2

    The device names in fstab for embedded do not matter anymore.

    It should be /dev/ufs/pfsense0  for the first slice and /dev/ufs/pfsense1 for the second slice. The underlying geom ufs labels should be picked up during boot.

    Nowhere in that second boot message did I see it list an actual disk. The BIOS probably got it far enough to boot but pfSense isn't seeing your controller properly.

    Check BIOS options to see if you can control anything ATA related, such as SATA/IDE/Legacy type modes. The answer is probably in the BIOS somewhere.



  • That's what I though, I'll probably end up getting an other SanDisk CF to test the v2.0-BETA

    I tested this: image my MicroDrive with the embedded image of the version 1.2.2 and it did the same thing… My Soekris doesn't like the MicroDrive, I won't beat it, I'll just supply it with a good real CF.

    Thanks for your help.



  • I finally tested my CF that is working with 1.2.2 and it works with 2.0, but unfortunately I had problem configuring everything, like IPSec, Traffic Shaper and I don't have the patience tonight to look at it. So I flashed back my backup image I took and I'm back to my rock solid 1.2.2

    I'll try to get my hands on a new CF to have to CF to play with…
