Raspberry Pi, swapping cards.


I'm new to the list and new to NetBSD so apologies if I'm asking stupid

I built NetBSD onto a Raspberry Pi over the weekend, no real issues,
it was fairly straightforward though I did stupidly set a really complex
root password that I couldn't type in when I needed to so had to mount the
image on another machine and clear it.  Note to self, set the difficult
root password AFTER you have networking and clean booting sorted :-)

Today I took the SD Card and plugged it into another Raspberry Pi.
It boots and I get a login prompt but there is no network connectivity
(I couldn't ping it or ssh to it) and the USB keyboard doesn't work.
It looks as if the USB bus doesn't get started - the keyboard caps lock
doesn't cause any lights to come on for instance.  These are both early
Raspberry Pi models :-

Hardware        : BCM2835
Revision        : 0000

If I swap the card back to the original hardware it works fine.  Is this
a known quirk or have I missed something in the build process.

I know the Pi's are both good - I can do the card shuffle with a Devuan
image and it all works fine.

Any ideas ?
