Hey there... first of all, thanks for the answers on the pmin -> 3min
memory... and the assorted DEC MIPS trivia (I, for one, am always
fascinated about such stuff).
My problem at hand, tho: I've got a few 5000/120s now and, of course,
want to run NetBSD on them. Since I have many running pminen, this
shouldn't be a problem. However...
The kernel I'm using (ftp://ftp.hks.net/NetBSD-pmax/950513-netbsd-rz0.HERD.gz)
has been confirmed to run on at least some 5000s (thanks for letting me
know, Andrew!) but when I try to boot the 3min off of a partition from
which I have successfully booted a pmin with boot 3/rz0/netbsd, it finds
the kernel, loads it, prints the copyright message, and then crashes with
"panic: kernel wired"
What should I do? Is the /120 supported? I remember something about
a newer bootblock being needed at some point in the past, but would the
kernel have loaded if the bootblock were bad?
Thanks for any help,
