I'm trying to install NetBSD on an E250 with a PCI Raptor VGA card.
When I boot -current, it outputs messages up to the point where it

through the genfb functions instead of through ofw, the top quarter
of the screen turns black with a few 2x2 white squares dotted at the
bottom line of this black section. After this, there is no more

Sounds like genfb and the video hardware disagree about colour depth
for some reason.
I have no idea how to debug the genfb issue. I tried reverting the
changes I found in the CVS changelog (especially after reading last
month's announcement by macallan), but none of these fixed the
These changes were workarounds for bugs in my Raptor's firmware, I
wouldn't be surprised if yours needs more than that. To see what's
going on I need:
- - ofctl -p output
- - dmesg output
Then, TechSource sold many different cards as 'Raptor' - are you sure
yours is a Raptor GFX 8P or Sun PGX32?
