Dies ist Thilos Unix Signature! Viel Spass damit.

DS2100 without framebuffer [-memory] (that strange SIMM) to force serial
console, 12MB RAM. 
Boot-ROM: KN01 V7.01
CPU: 'LR2000GC-12' (made by LSI Logic) if it matters (i.e. MIPS R2K)
System passes all selftests.

    NetBSD 1.5_ALPHA2 (Mini) #2: Fri Oct 13 15:37:29 MEST 2000
    NetBSD 1.5_ALPHA2 (INSTALL) #1: Mon Oct  2 23:44:14 MDT 2000
don't work

    NetBSD 1.4.2 (INSTALL) #30: Sun Mar  5 13:15:57 EST 2000
does work

I just got an DS2100 and I have problems booting anything 1.5-ish on it.

E.g. the nfsnetbsd kernel of the 1.5ALPHA2 distribution hangs with:
NetBSD 1.5_ALPHA2 (INSTALL) #1: Mon Oct  2 23:44:14 MDT 2000
DECstation 2100 (PMAX)
total memory = 12288 KB
avail memory = 9620 KB
using 179 buffers containing 716 KB of memory
mainbus0 (root)

(no newline after the (root))

And so do my own kernels, with or without framebuffer/rcons.

The nfsnetbsd kernel of the 1.4.2 distribution runs fine..
[But I want to run 1.5_ALPHA2 :-)]

Get a DS2100 and try to boot 1.5_ALPHA2. (See above)
