NetBSD candy 1.4.2 NetBSD 1.4.2 (GENERIC) #4: Sat Mar 18 01:16:20 CST 2000     fredb@corwin.home:/s/src/sys/arch/mac68k/compile/GENERIC mac68k


I want to run NetBSD/mac68k 1.5 without a monitor,
but it can't boot.
NetBSD/mac68k 1.4.2 can boot with same conditions.
Of course, NetBSD/mac68k 1.5 can boot with a monitor.
Why does NetBSD/mac68k 1.5 refuse to boot?
