When booting a 1.6_RC1 GENERIC kernel via network on my diskless HP 9000 433t
with Topcat 8bit DIO Framebuffer, all output to the console stops after the
message "Entrypoint ..."
Apparently the complete boot is aborted, no network activity occurs, I
cannot break into the debugger, and the machine does not show heartbeat
on the LEDs.
When booting with the serial console enabled in the BootROM setup,
the machine boots normally to multiuser, and is fully workable.
Except that I have no local console, and since the machine is meant as an
X-Terminal, it is unusable for me.
The problem also show if I use a 1280x1024 1bit framebuffer instead.
Netboot 1.6_RC1 on a HP 433t with a DIO framebuffer.
Some tests with Gregory McGarry <firstname.lastname@example.org> (see thread
"Netbooting 1.6_BETA3?" on email@example.com around July 5)
that the problem is in or around hp300_cninit().
