Keyboard Problem with V5.1 on an E4000

I am trying to revive an E4000. I did a "boot cdrom" at the OpenBoot
prompt, NetBSD boots, displays a bunch of configuration messages on
the console, changes the configuration of the video display (it says
wsdisplay0) displays the configuration messages, and asks for the
terminal type. At this point the keyboard stops working.  A "stop-A"
will not get it back to OpenBoot. They keyboard works OK with
OpenSolaris.

Ideas?

From the kernel messages, can you tell what variant of {e,u,o}hci the usb
is on and what it says about the keyboard?

Can you try a current snapshot?

I expect the standard kernel config doesn't support the driver attachment 
points you need.  

How is your keyboard attached to your E4K?  What's the OBP device path for 
the keyboard and display?  Do you have SBus or PCI I/O cards?

It is a E4000 - big Iron - this shouldn't have a USB-controller at all!
Normal Keyboard-connector was still type5 keyboard back then - At least 
my E4500 has one.
The E4000 and E4500 are very similar so I doubt there is a difference.

It has the normal Sun non-USB keyboard port on an I/O board in slot 0.
It has a CGSix Sbus board on the I/O board in slot 0.

I pulled all of the CPU boards but one to simplify the configuration.

With the keyboard unplugged and using the serial console:

ok boot cdrom
Boot device: /sbus <at> 3,0/SUNW,fas <at> 3,8800000/sd <at> 6,0:f  File and args:
NetBSD IEEE 1275 Bootblock

i think one of these is the problem.  either central or fhc should
be attaching something here, and we're missing some of the onboard
devices attached here.  both serial ports and keyboard are missing
from these boot logs.

the reason it works with serial console is that pcons attaches.  the
reason it doesn't work with the keyboard attached is that pcons does
not attach here, presumably because wsdiplay0 claimed the console?

can you send or link to a prtconf -v or whatever it is from solaris
that will show the entire OFW device tree?  it would be great to get
these systems finally supported!

thanks.

re: Keyboard Problem with V5.1 on an E4000


so, i ported the fhc and central drivers, and the clock and zs
attachments for them.  however, it crashes when attaching the
central device.  not sure what is up there yet, it crashes in
a very strange way.

myself and others will keep looking.
