New install on an Ultra 10 of NetBSD 1.6.
Standard Ultra10 with onboard IDE controllers
Solaris installed on disk1 (boot disk1). dd miniroot to swap. Boot'd
swap slice and installed successfully on disk1.
ok boot disk0
<NetBSD kernel messages etc... All devices appear to be found
correctly. Will post output once I get a serial connection to this box.>
On a line by itself
Once this happens I am unable to type anything, CTL-C or numlock. I would
assume that it is trying to tell me what the root device is on the box and
is unable to determine it.
I am a NetBSD newbie but I thought that it is supposed to prompt you if it
is unable to determine the root device(?)
