After quire a long hiatus, I'm returning to my Qube 2 to give it another
shot. I have notes from previous exploits with NetBSD on the Qube 2 on
my website (shameless plug):
Anyhow, I haven't touched the box for a while and I booted it up to see
how things were doing. Apparently, I had cross-compiled my own kernel
(good for me) and installed a lot of stuff on it like Apache httpd,
samba, perl, etc.
Unfortunately, the serial consule is feeling a little strange: after
booting up, it wouldn't respond to keypresses and then a little later,
it reponded to a newline on the console with this:
NetBSD/cobalt (Amnesiac) (tty00)
login: Oct 17 15:22:07 login: 1 LOGIN FAILURE ON ttyp0
Stopped at netbsd:cpu_Debugger+0x4: jr ra
Perhaps I told it to do that at some point, but how the unit is locked.
I figure that the best thing to do since I don't care about anything on
the disk is to simply start over again with a netboot restore image.
Originally, I had used Dennis's NetBSD 1.6.1 restore image. Is there a
more up-to-date disk image floating around anywhere?
The NetBSD/Cobalt page mentions 1.6.2 but there's nothing on the FTP
site under "installation" -- only a binary kernel. There's also some
buzzing about NetBSD 2.0.
I'd appreciate any information anyone can provide.
