No luck. Most of the time, I get packets from ofnet full of crap (the
whole packet is full of 0xaa). Only from time to time I get the IP
assigned by DHCP, but never got to mount root.

It is really strange. Before fixing ofw_machdep.c to not report the
lower memory used for traps as available, I was able to connect via
IPKDB most of the time (the traps were overwritten by pmap with his
tables) . But now I can't, I get always those 0xaa packets.

See you,
