Does anyone happen to have a copy/backup of one of the very first next68k
I am looking for old versions of boot, since I used to be able to load a
kernel from a SCSI disk on a turbo slab. Sadly I overwrote this bootblock
during an upgrade.
The recent boot versions don't work on turbo hardware any more.
I tried compiling with the obvious CVS-visible changes reverted, but this
did not work, either (at least on my cross-compile setup).
So if anyone still has a _really_ ancient boot available, I'd appreciate a
Pointers to the relevant code changes are also welcome. (I suspect there
might have been revisions DBJ never committed to CVS.)
PS: I was thinking of building a md-root kernel to experiment with color
console and turbo hardware without the unsupported turbo DMA getting in
the way. But this still needs to be loaded somehow ...
