I see that these machines you're trying have different video cards

The one that locks loads the driver for the Rage128 frame buffer
(r128fb). The other loads the driver for the generic frame buffer
Worth a try - r128fb is relatively new and I could obviously test it
only on hardware I have, which is a G4 with an Apple-badged AGP card
and a Powerbook. It only attaches to hardware either I or someone I
talked to tested. There may well be issues I just never ran into. On
the other hand, since it attached Donald apparently has the same model
as I do and I didn't see any problems. I do have different CPUs though
( 2x 500MHz 7400 ).
I think I had problems with ATI graphics cards in the past and using
genfb solved them. In my case, the machine would run headless
There are three completely different drivers for three completely
different chip families from ATI in NetBSD, which share no non-
trivial, hardware-dependent code. Besides, genfb is about the same age
as r128fb, there most definitely was no genfb in 2.1.
