I recently got a DECstation 5000/125 and I'm trying to get Linux to run.
I'm using minicom and while I get output from the machine, I can not
type anything on the prom. When I power the machine on, I get:
?TFL: #0 PMAGB-BA PATT: 5: Red screen Test
?STF (4: Ln#0 Kbd self test)
?STF (4: Ln#1 Pntr self test)
When I type anything, nothing happens at all. When I press the
reset button (or whatever it's called), the machine boots NetBSD:
V5.7e (PC: 0xbfc00cbc, SP: 0xa000feb4)
>> NetBSD/pmax Secondary Boot, Revision 1.0
>> (root@vlad, Sat Mar 4 14:34:30 EST 2000)
The funny thing is that I _can_ type when NetBSD is being started. But
nothing happens on the prom.
What can I do?
FWIW, dmesg on NetBSD says:
DECstation 5000/125 (3MIN)
