I am having a problem booting NetBSD 1.2.1 (using Booter 1.9.7) on a Mac II
with 8 MB of RAM, running System 7.5.3. It looks as though the kernel
begins to load (I sometimes get the copyright message, and once even got
the line with the GENERIC tag and version number), but then the system
freezes. I have two questions:
1) How do I find out *where* or *why* the kernel is freezing?
2) Has anybody encountered this behavior before?
Thanks in advance for any insights you might have. What is maddening is
that NetBSD used to boot without any trouble. I am getting these freezes
with a newly mkfs'ed and installed system. I have also tried GENERIC_39,
to no avail...
