It stops right at the file /dev/need_disks_created. There are a bunch
of errors before this. The /dev/need_disks_created file does not seem
to get written to disk correctly....the e2fsck cleans it up by the looks
of things. I guess there is something about the cpio that the installer
I tried extracting the cpio archive with Irix cpio and it seems fine.
Does that give any clues? Just another thought...I'm running Irix
6.5beta. Wonder if that could be causing a problem with the installer??
