I am trying to set up a standalone (sd card boot) 9front installation on 
a Raspberry Pi 3 (using the pi3/4 image) to boot as a cpu server, but I 
can't figure out where to put the service=cpu and bootargs=... options.

The pi uses /n/pidos instead of /n/9fat, and I tried placing these in 
both config.txt and cmdline.txt within that mount, but they seem to be 
ignored in both places, and I am not finding any documentation on this - 
everything relevant seems to be written assuming the x64/amd64 situation...?

I don't currently have a pi that I can use, but I seem to remember that
cmdline.txt is the right place to put it, but you need to put all the
arguments on one line, instead of multiple lines.

Something like:

	bootfile=9pi4 'nobootprompt=local!/dev/sdN0/fscache -a tcp!*!564' mouseport=none service=cpu ...

Thanks, that is what I was missing - I had them on separate lines.

Now I need to puzzle through this "tlsclient: auth_proxy: auth_proxy rpc 
write: interrupted" error whenever I try to use rcpu to connect back to 
the server as a different user (from a drawterm connection).  If I just 
"rcpu" by itself it works, but "rcpu -u glenda" for example gives me 
that error.

First, make sure that your auth server is actually set up and found
correctly -- auth/debug can help here. Note that you'll probably be
able to auth as hostowner even if your auth server is misconfigured.

Thanks, auth/debug was indeed useful.

Somehow I missed the authdom= entry in /lib/ndb/local and it was 
complaining that it could not find an auth server for my authdom.

I added that and rebooted, and now all is well.
