Re: Boot NetBSD9.1 on a SUN Blade 100
I saw that thread you refer to, but did not consider it being relevant for me. But trying a different version of NetBSD is obviously a good idea, so will do and report back.

While I was using Solaris during my universiyt times, nowadays it feels a bit awkward, as it seems to be sometimes a bit difficult to adminster. Moreover, there seems to be no up-to-date web-browser available for it. OpenCSW.org offers a great collection of pre-compiled SW packages, however, these seem to be a little outdated as well, as those for Solaris 9 are no longer updated.

While the booting from CDROM seems to work quite ok at first sight, the kernel hangs at "admtemp0: workqueue busy: updates stopped" and I have not the slightest idea, what this could mean. The sensor shwos up earlier in the boot log, but seems to be ok.
