I don't think our boot loader understands ffsv2 even in -current -
your root partition or whatever you want to load the kernel from
must be ffsv1, everything else can be ffsv2 or whatever else you
want. That doesn't explain the deadlocks though.

Actually, I have a 2Mb HFS partition for the bootloader.
It showed up on wdc. Can't remember at what now. Not sure, afaik the
hardware is *very* similar to the GigE

work fine on all the Macs I have here.
Same behavior on the onboard ata channel.
Damn, there goes the easy way out.
How does the kernel recognize the IDE controller? wdc at pci, wdc at
obio or something completely different? Does the Quicksilver have an
extra IDE chip like the b&w G3 did?
I've never had a Quicksilver in my hands so I need to know what's in
Any chance to capture the dmesg output before it deadlocks and mail
it to me?
Not too sure how I would transfer it back :/
