after a long Period of inactivity my vaxstation runs now under
NetBSD2.0. But there are some questions. ;-)
First: I connected an old extern Apple SCSI CD-rom to my diva (my
VAXstation 4000.90 ) switch on the diva and after a >>>show dev command
the vax gives me the following screen back.
VMS/VMB ADDR Devtype Numbytes RM/FX WP DEVNAM REV
DKA0 A/0/0 RODISK 682.19MB RM WP CD_ROM 1.8g
DKA100 A/1/0 RODISK 682.19MB RM WP CD_ROM 1.8g
DKA200 2 " " " " " "
DKA300 A/3/0 DISK 1.05GB FX RZ26B 0B04
DKA400 A/4/0 RODISK 682.19MB RM WP CD_ROM 1.8g
DKA500 A/5/0 RODISK 682.19MB RM WP CD_ROM 1.8g
..HostID.. A/6 INITRD
DKA600 A/5/0 RODISK 682.19MB RM WP CD_ROM 1.8g
I inserted a multiboot cd-rom (Lehmanns Online Bookshop Edition NetBSD
2.0 from 12/2004 ) to the drive. At bootprompt i type >>> b DKA0. Yes,
the diva begins to boot.!!! But why i get so confusing information ??
Can anyone explain me that SCSImysterium ;-)?
Second question : you see the Harddisk of my Vax isn't really big. How i
can connect a second HD ( intern ) to the system such as IBM DDRS-34560
or SEAGATE ST34520. I've tested it with both Harddisks and >>> show dev
show's me nothing, only the screen above. A RZ28-E is being idenified.
But you know how noisy these Harddisk is :-(
So, that was my questions for the first time.
I hope my English was not so awful ;-)
