NetBSD/pmax 2.0, DECstation 5000/260 with 96MB RAM, kernel from kern-WSCONS.tgz
Kernel is not able to initialize with a PMAG-C as primary video interface. A PMAGB-B (alone or with the PMAG-C as additional card) works flawlessly. Here's the output from the PROM monitor trying to boot the kernel:
>>boot 3/rz0/netbsd_temp -a

Taking the additional memory modules out doesn't change anything (I currently have 2x32MB and 4x8 MB). The machine ran fine the last time I tried it with the PMAG-C (release 1.5 beta). The PROM diagnostic routines run without errors.
Install a PMAG-C as the only video adapter into your DECstation and try booting any 2.0 kernel (no matter if kernel from kern-WSCONS.tgz or built from sources)
