I recently got hold of an old VAXstation 3100 M76 for free. Sadly it came
without OS and without documentation.
I was happy to find that NetBSD is supposed to run on it and immideately
proceeded to install it via mopd with my linux box. The VAX Netboot HOWTO
provides a nice walkthrough.
Everything seems to be just fine, the VAX communicates with mopd, but then
it all just stops:
: /netbsdQuote:>> NetBSD/vax boot [980110 22:29] <<
?50 SCB2NDINT, ESA0
?06 HLT INST
PC = 00000B51
I correctly put the VAX in my rarp table. I veryfied the function of rarp
with another linux box hooked up as diskless.
Why doesn't the VAX get its IP address ?
What does SCB2NDINT mean ?
I used NetBSD 1.3 binaries.
I leftjust two SIMMS in the VAX, so it must surly be below 16MB as required
for netbooting with netbsd.
As you can see I am at a total loss.
Your help would be much appreciated. Please also email your answer.
Thanks a bunch
