NetBSD4 INSTALL kernel fails to boot on A7000


 I'm attempting to boot the INSTALL kernel from


and get the following

NetBSD/acorn32 booting ...
Kernel loaded from file /INSTALL
Kernel arg string(@0xf03e00a4) root=/dev/wd0a

Boot configuration structure reports the following memory

A photo of the above output is available here.


On a side note, I have managed to successfully install NetBSD 3.1 on
the A7000 instead. Though I'm wondering are NetBSD 4 binary packages
compatible with 3.1? Or is there an archive of 3.1 compiled packages?

I have managed to setup and run the pkgsrc system, it's rather clever.
But given it took 2 days to compile net-snmp (1 day for the dependency
perl), I figure the best for a 32MHz system would be binary :-)
