I got NetBSD installed on an old PowerMac B&W G3. And it boots.
Except, I'm being asked to enter in the root disk, for init, etc.
Any way around this?
This means (somehow) the OF string describing the boot device could not
be matched against the disks found by the kernel. Can you show the part
of dmesg that describes your root disk (including controllers)?
What is the OF boot device set to?
boot device was set to:
boot file set to ultra0:8,/netbsd
I have 3 disks (2 ide and one attached to a scsi card). Installed to
wd0... Here is the dmesg info for wd0:
wd0 at atabus0 drive 0: <IC35L060AVV207-0>
wd0: drive supports 16-sector PIO transfers, LBA48 addressing
wd0: 38162 MB, 77536 cyl, 16 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 78156288 sectors
wd0: drive supports PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2, Ultra-DMA mode 5 (Ultra/100)
wd0(cmdide0:0:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 2 (Ultra/33) (using DMA)
