I'm trying to get a DS5000/125 up. I finally got it powered up and got
the following messages:
?STF (4: Ln#0 Kbd self test)
?STF (4: Ln:1 Pntr self test)
?TFL: 3/mem/select (UEX, cause= 0000041C, DBE = 023ffffc, Bank 2, D16-31,
I assume the first one is because I don't have keyboard plugged
in. What's the 2nd one? Also, the 3rd one looks like a memory
problem. When I got this machine it had no memory in it and I bought
some. I'm hoping that maybe it's just not seated correctly or something.
Also, the ROM reports itself as KN02-BA V5.7j. The web page says "Can't
seem to TFTP boot". What are my options for getting NetBSD on this
machine? Can I load it off a tape drive?
Finally, I'm using a VRC-16 monitor with this (It's a PMAG-BA). The
display looks pretty weird, it doesn't fill the screen and it's a bit
distorted, albeit readable. Is anyone else using this combination?
Thanks for any help and advice.
