And tonight I tried moving vaxine's disk over to the 3300 and booting
from it. I've tried a plethora of generic kernels (different versions of
NetBSD, from version 1.1A to 1.3G) all crashing. 1.3G (the kernel on
subzero) at least gives a little more information:
cpu0 at backplane0: KA640, CVAX microcode rev 4 Firmware rev 83
panic: ptelen fault in system space: addr 0 pc 0
syncing disks... done
?06 HLT INST
PC = 800A8121
Ragge, I thought DDB was commented out in recent generic kernels? At
least it is in NetBSD-current/src/sys/arch/vax/conf/GENERIC.
Does this mean that 3300/3400 support is broken?
