hi, for quite a while now I want to install hurd on my computer. First I tried it on my Desktop but unfortunately it has only sata hds. So next step: install it on a laptop (dell c400). I managed the crosshurd, and the grub2 (which is not so easy from ubuntu).
but there are two things that I can't get to work: first of all, where is the -s option (for singleusermode) to be placed to run actually in singleusermode? For now I booted only the first time into singleuser afterwards into multiuser. Where I can't log in. because I have no passwd.
second, the native-install script fails. it says something like "initscripts can't be configured because of a missing dependency". oh and third: when I try to run passwd to change the root passwd that doesn't work either. something about pal_deamon not running.
hope those problems can be fixed since I really want to explore the hurd. best FD
