I have two questions:
1. what is the story about MacBSD support for MacIIfx?
2. what is the story about ethernet support on MacIIx?
This is what I am trying to do:
the kernel from netBSD-1.0 boots on a borrowed macIIx
(it's owner was really happy to get my macIIfx
in exchange :-) but I cannot get the eithernet
network to function: about 10 seconds after I type
root> ifconfig ae0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
I see the message (approximately) "ethernet ring buffer overflow"
and the machine freezes.
I tried to boot newer kernels (from NetBSD-current and from ftp.eskimo.com)
but neither of them boot- they hang after complaining about
my graphics card. I can give more details if anybody wants them.
