I'm currently using a PowerBook5,8 and have managed to get NetBSD
working nicely on it, except X, but I'm compiling the modular xorg
server right now.
I don't have the sources at hand just now, but IIRC you need:
- to have the hard disk controller recognized (trivial)
- to have the gem ethernet recognized (trivial)
- to disable radeonfb and fwohci in your kernel config file or using
I'll post patches or commit them ASAP, but I didn't figure out what's
wrong with either radeonfb (same symptoms as you) or fwohci (panics
the kernel), so don't expect anything from me on this front.
