Because on 7 Oct when I cvs'ed src/sys to rebuild my kernel and src/etc
to check for new settings, in the new etc/sysct.conf, the kern.emul.*
switches are not listed. And since I had COMPAT_LINUX in my config
files for building my kernel, and had installed the redhat stuff
successfully several times before, I didn't look at compat_linux.
However, that ain't the problem any more. Like I said, I fixed it and
installed redhat/base successfully. The question is why is redhat/motif
STILL crapping out? One would expect that if I have kern.emul.linux=1
and everything else necessary to successfully install redhat/base that
redhat/motif should also install OK.
For something as important as linux emulation (and freebsd & aout,
too), shouldn't the kern.emul.* settings have been put in the
etc/sysctl.conf one gets via cvs? I know that kern.emul.* is mentioned
on the daily changelog page, but it is buried way down the list (it
would be more helpful if those entries were dated) so how would I know
about those new sysctl settings since I usually only get the kernel
