netbooting hppa boxes


I've got a HP D/390 here, and I wanted to try something really silly
and netboot NetBSD (well, *try* and netboot NetBSD :)

Problem is, I've no idea what protocol it speaks when you do:

boot 10/16/6.0

I ran up an rbootd but that didn't seem to respond.

Comments ?

Newer machines use DHCP and TFTP to netboot, this may be one.

...hey i've noticed there hasn't been much traffic on the list these last
couple of weeks. is there anything that users can do to help assist/
faciliate the development cycle?

i'd be happy to provide shell access to a box that has console interface
on my hp box, if it would be helpful.

Ah yes, DHCP!

This page talks some about the models that use DHCP:

http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/network/netboot/intro.hp700.html

This page has an example /etc/bootptab configuration:

http://openbsd.org/hppa.html

I don't know much more, as all of my machines are of the rbootd vintage.

status of source being available via CVS?

Howdy

Since I saw I little traffic here I thought I'd ask 
what was the status of the source being available 
via CVS?

I'd say that most of the purely machine-dependent code is in.  There's 
about 1600 patch-lines outstanding that I need to get into MI code, 
mostly related to stack direction and SCSI support.  This stuff needs
tech-kern <at>  review so it might take a little while.

As a teaser though, yesterday I did get a machine to boot multiuser
with shared libraries.  Look for a new snapshot and toolchain package
probably sometime in the next week.

Cool, I'm looking forward to trying out my B132L+ when I get a 
little bit of time.

roadmap?

When can I expect my favorite OS to be available for HP9000 715/80
(PA7100LC (PCX-L) PA-RISC1.1d family CPU)? If you need any help in
making it work let me know. I'm not too familiar with pariscs, though.

It might work.  Try the latest snapshot on your system and let us know the
results.  ISTR no one has tried this model yet.
