Is anyone actively working on this? I've got a 319 and a 400t (68040)
on my desk right now. The 319 is happily running NetBSD 1.0
with it's own local disk. The 319 is also running rbootd.
As I write this, the 400t says:
>> NetBSD NETWORK BOOT HP9000/380/425 CPU [$Revision: 1.3 $]
but it doesn't get much farther than that (It won't even do the NFS
mount, as the sources indicate it can). I've been playing around with
the sources a bit (not much time :-( ) and I think part of the problem is
that I'm using netboot code from -current, and kernel stuff and libraries
from 1.0 (e.g. the NFS stuff is handled differently).
I think my next goal before playing much more with the netboot stuff
should be to get -current going... On that note:
Is there a snapshot of NetBSD-current for HP300's dated sometime after
the newer NFS stuff came in, and after the netboot stuff was added?
Or must I attempt to get -current running myself? (If I must compile
it myself, how stable/useable/compilable is the July 29 release?)
