Hi again..

Ok, i found out the sytem id of my VAXstation 4000 VLC. But there are
some strage things:

the SID is 14000006
According to the hardware documentation
(, the
VLC is also known as M30, but according to the sources (sid.h), the VS
4000/30 has SID 14000004. One must be wrong. CPU is KA48. I get the
current kernel sources this moment and try to get it running with the
KA43 or KA46 console I/O.

And here some corrections to the hardware documentation, hope someone
will put it into the file.

VAXstation 3100 m76:
CPU: KA43-A (V1.2 in my case)
Enclosure: BA42A

VAXstation 4000 VLC:
CPU: KA48-A (V1.3 in my case)
Enclosure: BA10A

so, the so-called "pizza-box" has the official code "BA10A"

Ok, more info on the 4000 VLC welcome.

cu.. Michael
