The booted kernel is NetBSD 6.0 Generic kernel which is knowing nothing
about the machine, so that Halt was expected.
I know nothing about VAX Assembler (but a little about PDP11's and KA630 QBUS
machines), I'm a normal FreeBSD User (for daily work) can program a little
in C and I'm a BSD Fan. Maybe Ragge is remembering me (He, I'm the guy that
sent you an UC07 and some german Beers 20 years before now :-)).
Yes, of course I remember! The beer was good :-)
Unfortunately I could never get the UC07 passing init step 4; setting up
DMA for descriptors... :-/
Anyway, since this is a CVAX it should be simple to get a kernel that at
least says hello.
You need to add the boardtype to include/sid.h (seems like you have the
info already) and then
have it correctly added in the switch table in vax/findcpu.c.
Is it using MTPR for console communications? Then add it besides the
650 board type, otherwise
you must find out how it communicates with the console.
