This is similar to the problems I wrote I was having with -current
on an IBM 600 laptop, except that:
| booting wd0a:netbsd - starting in 0
| 2422950+35300+168700 [65+129968+94525]=0x2b9498
| [stops here after CRLF--no further output]
Instead of stops_here, I get resets/reboots immediately.
| The currently working kernel is 1.5S from March 15, and I also successfully
| booted the 1.5T GENERIC kernel from the April 7 snapshot.
I have an April 19 kernel working. Nothing after about 5 May has worked for
me on the laptop.
Some suggestions about the MCA boot code being responsible were
made: I backed them out and have the same problem.
