| Hello folks,
| PROBLEM RESOLVED: the workaround is to compile the i386 kernel with PAE
| and without cpuacpi.
| (as suggested by julien kroczek)
| I can confirm the comp successfully boots when I compile the i386 kernel
| PAE and comment out CPUACPI.
| Even if my memory is only 2GB, standard kernel seems to be unable to
| check it.
| The other proposal, to boot the latest kernel, did not work, both the
| latest amd64 and i386 from nyftp.netbsd.org failed to load. Amd was not
| even able to start booting.
| Unfortunately the kernel would not recognize the wireless card and it
| cannot find a driver for my usb/lan adapter mos0 which works flawlessly
| in Linux, OpenBSD and FreeBSD. So the comp is pretty useless if I boot
| NetBSD and cannot access network... :-(
| Any tips for a good usb/lan adaptor for NetBSD?
urtwn seems to be pretty popular, which one is not recognized?
