Tried the Bt485 card in my AlphaStation and it didn't work either. Similar
error message.

Meanwhilst I tried to install netBSD on my AlphaServer with its internal
graphics card. Both 1.4.2 and 1.5-alpha2 failing with the following message:

netbsd at 0xfffffc000301100
panic: pci_display_console: no device at 0/0/0

Any useful hints? - I don't want big things, just booting ;-))

Best regards
