Yesterday I put netbsd 1.2D on a decstation 25. Most things
went well but there are some problems I'm having that I wondered
if anyone had seen:
1) It boots about 1/2 the time -- the other half it hangs in
the 'old-style SCSI autoconfiguration' section right after
bootup. Various SCSI device configuration changes have not
solved this and the culpret seems to be a Seagate 1gig SCSI
2) the tar-ed, precompiled X server has a strange problem
with the mouse; it's the same problem mentioned in the
previous messages except I am using the fb0 device as mouse.
I've noticed this is particularly bad when the machine load
3) The right shift key does not work only under X. Trying to
change this via xkeycaps/xmodmap does not work. I seem to be
able to redefine any other key except the right shift. The
left shift works fine.
4) Every now and then the le0 interface stops working and the
kernel logs a 'lost carrier'. Continued use of the interface
seems to bring it back to life.
If anyone knows anything about any of these problems, please
help me out. The shift thing is particularly annoying; I
have a feeling that it is a simple problem but I am not sure
how to proceed. Thanks in advance.
