Just got my hands on a Alpha PWS 500au, nice machine with 2 SCSI disks
and 256MB memory. I've updated the firmware to the latest.
When using the SRM console trying to boot NetBSD/alpha 1.5.2 off the CD,
after the load of the install kernel is done the screen goes blank.
When I hit the reset button I just come back to the console, with this:
Entering netbsd at 0xfffffc00003010c0...
halted CPU 0
halt code = 1
operator initiated halt
PC = fffffc0000300640
Is there any env settings that must be done before booting?
My graphics card is a PCI something, got cirrus and ibm chip on it.
And has a 3D goggle output on the back.
``show dev'' gives me something like this:
dkb0 Toshiba cdrom something, connected to PCI EIDE (?)
dkc0 First SCSI disk
dkc100 Second SCSI disk
pkc0 SCSI Contoller (?)
pqa0 PCI EIDE 1
pqb0 PCI EIDE 2
PLEASE REPLY TO ME, I'M NOT IN THIS LIST.
What have I forgot? :)
