I'm having difficulty installing netbsd on an alpha 3000/500.
It boots from the cd, then switches to the serial console after
displaying "SWITCHING TO SERIAL CONSOLE", then the display hangs,
but the machine appears to be doing something. Is a serial console
mandatory at this point? Are there any flags to force it use the
attached monitor/keyboard? Can someone point me to an explanation
of this behavior?
