NetBSD GENERIC kernel on Sun Sparcstation-2. (sorry, machine is elsewhere.)
This is similar to PR#8121 - it seems to be related to RASTERCONSOLE and
During booting, console works normally until cgsix driver loads.
After that point scrolling due to line-feeds no longer work.
Basically everything ends up being printed on the bottom line
of the display. Some multi-line output appears to sort-of work,
in that some text appears a few lines up.
Clearing the screen also does not work. Cursor goes to top left,
but nothing is cleared from screen.
I expect this is a problem with the version of my cgsix - I
guess other people would have noticed it by now - but I thought
I should bring it to someone's attention in case there is a fix.
I wish I had a copy of the dmesg output with me...
Xsun works OK.
Boot NetBSD GENERIC console on Sun SS-2 with cgsix and watch.
Replace dodgy cgsix?
I'm in the process of building a kernel without RASTERCONSOLE to
test, but as the INSTALL kernel behaves OK, I think I can guess
