I tried to boot my machine with mopd and nfs. mopd works fine, nfs =
me also working correctly.
The kernel Image is loaded into the vax, but when the kernel tries to =
up, I always get something like:
bootp: no reply
boot: client IP address: 18.104.22.168
boot: client name: myvax
root addr=3D22.214.171.124 path=3D/export/myvax/root
?06 HLT INST
PC =3D 8009E836
Loading system software.
I tried different kernelversions, but alwas the same. Do you (or some =
else) have an idea what I did wrong?
The consol output is from boot.mop and netbsd.ram.gz from this =
