Maybe you should try the kernel from


Since this is a GENERIC Kernel there should be an le0 defined in:

# Vsbus, the virtual VAXstation bus, and possible devices.
le0             at vsbus0 csr 0x200e0000 # LANCE ethernet
dz0             at vsbus0 csr 0x200a0000 # DC-367 DZ-11 lookalike ctlr
dz0             at vsbus0 csr 0x25000000 # VS4000/90 and 4000/10x serial
si0             at vsbus0 csr 0x200c0080 # VS2000/3100 SCSI-ctlr
si1             at vsbus0 csr 0x200c0180 # VS2000/3100 SCSI-ctlr
asc0            at vsbus0 csr 0x200c0080 # VS4000/60 (or VLC) SCSI-ctlr
asc0            at vsbus0 csr 0x26000080 # VS4000/90 and 4000/10x SCSI-ctlr
smg0            at vsbus0 csr 0x200f0000 # Small monochrome display ctlr.
#clr0           at vsbus0 csr 0x30000000 # 4- or 8-bitplans color graphics
spx0            at vsbus0 csr 0x38000000 # Low Cost SPX on VS4000/90.
#lcg0           at vsbus0 csr 0x21801000 # VS4000/60 (or VLC) graphics
tc0             at vsbus0 csr 0x36000000 # VS4000/60 or 90 TC adapter

...but on my vs4k90 the sgec at the mainbus gets detected, don't know
how this is handles on the vs4k60 with the lance chip.

The CPU is the ka46?
