Re: How to enable PC-Console on boot

Hi Manuel,

I'm not sure what consdev would do with a Xen multiboot.
But something like this may work:

menu=Boot Xen:load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0.gz root=NAME=root console=pc;multiboot /xen.gz dom0_mem=512M console=vga dom0_max_vcpus=1 dom0_vcpus_pin

This is similiar to what I tried before, but it obviously does not boot the system (at least I can't reach it via SSH). Since I don't see anything on the console, I can only speculate. My intermediate conclusion is that apparently specifying root=NAME=root and console=pc at the same time invokes some kind of conflict. Hence the question for a formal description of boot.cfg, which would be helpful for this probably quite special case. In all examples I found with multiboot only one or no parameter is attached behind the NetBSD kernel.

Kind regards
