This is the only way I can send this bug report and the only address I
have found to send for help.
I have the full 1.0 release of Net-BSD for the Amiga platform.
I went through the instructions setting up a 200 Meg SCSI Hard Disk
into (4) partitions as indicated. Basically I can't finish the install
because every time I try to boot the NetBSD kernal either from the
Boot diskette created with the image, or from an Amiga DOS file with
the LOADBSD -B NETBSD, after showing 2 Meg CHIP memory and 8 Meg FAST
memory and then clearing the screen it will lock up .
Any help would be most apreciated, as I am dying to get this UNIX
going on my machine, and I haven't the slightest idea what is locking
up the machine. I suspect maybe either the AMAX-4 Mac emu board or the
8 meg 16bit memory expansion board.
I am using an Amiga 3000t (tower), using Amiga DOS 2.04 KS/2.1 WB, the
SCSI chip is the PROTO version, 2 Meg CHIP, 4 Meg 32bit FAST, and a
Zoro II 8 Meg 16bit FAST memory commodore expansion board. The machine
also has a Retina z3/BLT video card, AMAX-4 MAC emulator board,
numerous scsi hard disks and an NEC 2x speed CD ROM using Xetec
drivers in Amiga DOS. The following hard drives are being used:
Rodime 240 Meg SCSI
Western Digital 200 Meg SCSI (the one I want to use for NetBSD)
Quantum 40 Meg SCSI
Quantum 120 Meg SCSI
Seagate WREN 1 Gig SCSI (the drive I am trying to install from)
Please reply with any thoughts on the situation to:
