I have an exceptionally jinxed machine.
It is nearly working. Nearly. At this point, it appears its only substantial
problem is that it isn't going MP.
I was running 3.0 on it, wherein it would go MP successfully using the mpbios
option, and no ACPI. I'm now running 3.99.21 (-current from the tarballs at
NetBSD.org), and I get "cpu1: not started". I have tried both MPBIOS and
MPACPI, and I do have the MULTIPROCESSOR option in my kernel config. I'm not
seeing anything obvious to explain this.
Any suggestions of where to look?
