    This is normal. There is still some debugging to do in the driver code
somewhere. I the real problem is that the developers do not have access
to a machine.

     I wish I could be of help as I would love to run NetBSD on at least one
of my 3 Jensens.  I have RedHat running on two of them but it is such a pig
as to be not very usefull. I wish I was enough of a kernel hacker to be able
to fix it myself, there are a lot of Jensens in existance.

    One of my ideas was to run NetBSD on one of my Alphastations and look
at the source and go from there. Would any of the NetBSD developers be
able to lend me a hand?

    Another alternative is for me to donate a machine to the developers. Would
anyone be interested? I am in Canada so shipping and customs would be some
hassle, but if its within reason I would be happy to contribute a machine.
