Sorry if I'm asking a frequently-asked-question.

I'm entirely new to MacBSD and the MacBSD-General mailing list (subscribed
yesterday), so I probably do not understand what is going on. Nonetheless,
this is my experience with the kernel at

I set up a filesystem and swap on a 44 meg syquest. I have a MacIIsi
w/5megs RAM, running System 7.0. I made drivers, installed the si.test
kernel (which extracted as "netbsd10.test"), etc10, and base10, in that

Upon booting the only abnormal signs were:

"adb-init(): timed out!!!"
And the failure to recognize any keyboard input at the login prompt.

Just two quick questions:

Is the si.test kernel supposed to work on an si, or do I misunderstand?
If it is supposed to work, am I making an obvious mistake?

BTW: Thanks for the effort everyone is putting into this port! I'll be stoked
     when it runs on my IIsi!
