NetBSD 4.0.1 on 7300 with G3 card
I've installed NetBSD 4.0.1 on an Apple PowerMac 7300 with Sonnet
Crescendo 500 MHz G3 CPU card.
Installation via Open Firmware 1.0.5 using boot floppies was almost
straightforward thanks to the excellent documentation on www.NetBSD.org.
The only serious issue I ran into was the bug described in
A few questions remain:
- the only media selection option for the mc ethernet adapter seems
to be "manual". This works fine for me. I wonder however how one
could select AAUI vs. 10baseT.
- why is there no DHCP support as with the i386 boot floppies?
- likewise, there does not seem to be support for keyboard layouts
other than US English. Is this an Open Firmware issue? Manually
selecting wscons (with the finished installation) seems to work fine.
- The Sonnect Crescendo CPU seems to work fine. Now I am wondering
how to enable the L2 cache.
cpu0 at mainbus0: 750 (Revision 3.0), ID 0 (primary)
cpu0: HID0 8290c0a4<EMCP,ECLK,DOZE,DPM,ICE,DCE,SGE,BTIC,BHT>,
cpu0: 500.00 MHz L2 cache present but not enabled
I came across http://mail-index.netbsd.org/port-macppc/
2001/01/05/0000.html and http://mail-index.netbsd.org/port-macppc/
How do I figure out which L2RAM option is appropriate?
According to the sticker on the card I have a 500 MHz G3 with 1 MB
L2. I assume the L2 is running at only half the 500 MHz, or is it
really using the full 500 MHz?
I think it is this card:
There's another strange thing. I've added a UF200 PCI firewire/USB
combo card. This is how it is detected:

why on earth is NetBSD talking about a Lucent Sierra Wireless mobile
adapter??? Is this a PCI ID mismatch in the kernel?
In src/sys/dev/pci/pcidevs I find:
vendor LUCENT 0x11c1 Lucent Technologies
product LUCENT EVDO 0x5802 Sierra Wireless AirCard 580
However, http://www.pcidatabase.com/vendor_details.php?id=979 lists
Chip Number: USS-312MC
Chip Description: 2-port PCI-to-USB OpenHCI Host Ctrlr
which makes much more sense.
Maybe someone might want to check other OS's kernel sources.
Is the Sierra Wireless AirCard 580 a PCI device?
It is also listed in dev/usb/usbdevs
I wonder whether this is correct or whether this is the same mistake.
According to http://shopping.msn.com/specs/sierra-wireless-
that card is a cardbus device. I don't see any PCI or USB stuff
However, it seems to involve some USB stuff (comes with its own USB
chip?) according to
