(replied before, but email handler was confused, reply came from with no subject.)

I checked the boot of both the laptop and the RaQ for errors, they are in
chronologic order, but not directly after each other.


Boot device: <unknown>
Warning: No /dev/console
init: Creating mfs /dev
mount: /: unknown special file or file system
CD: Can't cd to /var/run
umount: /dev: device busy
kvm_mkbd: NetBSD: No such file or directory
/etc/rc: Warning: No swap space configured!

RaQ2+ console (tip qube):

tlp0 at PCI0 dev 7 function 0: DECchip 21143 Ethernet, pas 4.1
tlp0: Sorry, unable to handle your board
tlp1 at PCI0 dev 12 function 0: DECchip 21143 Ethernet, pas 4.1
tlp1: Sorry, unable to handle your board
Symbios Logic ( I can't recall the error, but there was one)
LCD0 at mainbus0boot device: <unknown>

It looks like some sort of hardware incompatability...
