I have just acquire an old NeXTstation, and I'm trying to test NetBSD on
it. I' new to both NeXTstation and NetBSD worlds, but I have a lot of
experience with Solaris and Linux systems.
I have folow the instructions for net booting the system, but it seems
the NeXT don't recognize the kernel. I have the same error as one on the
list in July :
Requesting BOOTP information[boot]
Booting /tftpboot/boot.netbsd from mylinuxbox.domain.com
.unknown binary format
(maybe not the same texts, but the same error : quickly say "unknown
I have try both 1.5.2 and 1.5.1 kernel.
Is the problem this model is not supported ?
Thanks in advance for any tips.
