I had no linux kernel but tried to boot a netbsd kernel via tftp on
the same machine (5000/240). The Boot Prom told me that the normal
BSD Kernel was no ECOFF (a.out blafufasel) and the NFS Kernel
crashed after starting.
As i have an EProm Programmer i will have a look at the Proms. Somebody
opened one of those machines ? Std EProm or what kind of (NV)R[ao]m
is on the Mainboard ?
BTW: Could someone give me a small hint where to get newest Linux-Mips
development kernel and maybe a cross-compiler to develop on a different
linux-i386 box with the tftp server. BTW: I might put 1 or 2 Decstations
online for development for everyone ( 5000/240 and 5000/150 ). Maybe ill
develop a remote reset|power switch so that remote developers may reboot
the DecStation and have a Null-Modem cable to a serial port on an
If there is enough feedback ill try my best.
