> Argh, somehow I misread your previous post. So the NetBSD kernel boots but init hangs when configuring mc0? Did you configure a standard gateway? If you did it tries to contact the gateway and waits for an answer - just hit ctrl-c and it should continue booting.
yes, there is a gateway, but it doesn't attempt to reach it from that interface.
the mac has two interfaces, mc0 and ex0, ex0 is connected to the LAN and has
address 10.0.1.6 and mc0 is a crossover to my laptop that i use as an Xterm
and has address 10.0.9.1. netmasks are 255.255.255.0 on both, and the gateway
address is 10.0.1.1.
as far as i know, there is no reason for it to contact anything on 10.0.9.0/24
since everything the mac will ever need is found on 10.0.1.0/24.
next time i have a chance to boot it i'll try to ^C and see what happens.
