: I have a functioning filesystem now, using the old root-0.01 with the
: newer tar.gz files untarred on top of it--ie, glibc, fileutils, etc. But
: mount refuses to behave correctly. Whenever I try to mount a filesystem,
: be it ext2 or NFS, mount dies with a bus error. Can anyone tell me what's
: going on with it?
How can you even boot if you can't mount the file systems?
Likely a mismatch between the mount binary and the kernel interface.
Beyond that, I can't say. Do you have sources that you can compile?
