:)Hi! There is a new binary snapshot of NetBSD/hp700 available under:
I just got around to trying this snapshot on my 735/100, and it fails. The
previous snapshots you've uploaded have worked on this machine. It loads
the kernel, but before it prints the copyright message it prints:
Start @ 0x800000 [1=0x5f3000-0x6a8f00]...
SPID bits: 0x0, error = -2
panic: pmap_bootstrap: cannot insert BTL entry
If I boot with an older kernel, it also prints the SPIB bits error, but
immediately after that prints "[using blah bytes..." and the copyright.
It seems to have some trouble running most of the rc steps (such as
"Creating databases...") and I have to ^C them to continue the boot
process. I never actually got it far enough for a login prompt.
