The output follows. Keep in mind that the machine is locked up, no
trap type 200 at 30fc10
Press a key to panic.
Stopped in pid 0 () at 0x304d04: lwz r0, r1, 0x14
and at the bottom of the screen in small letters:
method <'usb-kbd-ihandles> not found; ihandle=ffbc4cc0 phandle=ff932530
the machine is a new dual 1GHz G4. I can boot it with the snapshot
kernel netbsd.GENERIC_MD but not anything else. Should I try some
different load address stuff like is in the config file for that
kernel? Basically, I need to be able to specify the root filesystem
as I can't get any type of boot at all if I put a -a after the
kernel filename. and after the error ofwboot.xcf? types Boot and
whatever you enter at this prompt does no good, you just get another
Boot prompt, with the following result:
0 > boot hd:,\ofwboot.xcf netbsd -a load-size=d91c adler32=cae7e635

If I type netbsd at this point I get the above panic again.
