Our ES45 has just been removed from production, so I am attempting to boot
NetBSD on it, but no luck so far.
I have been able to boot an ES40 with no problems, but the ES45 (as well as
an ES47 we had taken out of production) fails loading the kernel.
The ES45 I have still had Tru64 on it, and when I booted it, I noticed
that it loaded at 0xfffffc0000430000. NetBSD was loading at
0xfffffc0000300000, so I build a kernel that loaded at 0xfffffc0000430000.
This kernel completed loading and began executing:
Entering netbsd-ES45 at 0xfffffc0000431130...
NetBSD does not yet support system type 38 (???).
panic: platform not supported
Next step would be to add the system type support, which may be a bit
more than I know.
