I don't know whether anyone else has made it available.
I've been away for a week but I've just checked and it seems
to be there (or at least the main page is). If you still cannot
get it and have somewhere I can ftp it to, I can send it along
next week.

Shutdown -r

Hi all
I'm on a MicroVAX3100m20, NetBSD 1.5.2 . I've noticed that shutdown -r
appears to shut the system down normally and then stop at the hardware
monitor - is this behaviour normal? The system is set to autoboot off
dka100:. It's certainly counter-intuitave, are there historical reasons
for this or am I just plain wrong?

VAX on simh...

Hello,

I've been playing with simh, and it's quite nice. However, it seems to
have no way to communicate with the real world. Does anyone have any ideas
about how one can get a NetBSD/VAX emulation on simh to talk TCP/IP?

Thanks,

There's at least one way I imagine this would be possible.  It would be
to run TCP/IP over PPP with one of the `terminal' connections to the
simh VAX.  It /seems/ like this should be a relatively easy thing to do;
admittedly, I've not thought through the details of exactly how this
would be done.

Also, the vax simulator "ts10" supports networking in the latest releases. 
I have tries some os:es from the vax and they work the way they should. 
Patrick Caulfield (i think) are working to put the same support into simh.

OT: Parity memory trade...

---Please reply directly to me---

	Apologies for being off-topic, but considering the number of helpful
gents here, hopefully someone can help me out. Thank you much for your
patience :)

	I have 2 16x36 (64MB each) Parity 72 pin SIMMs...
The sticker on them says...
02/27/97     1538
202639
16Mx36-6SIMST
Void If Removed
...they are 1 3/16" high, 36 chips on each.
 I'm looking to trade these for a set of either 4 8x36 (32MB ea) or 8 4x36
(16MB ea) SIMMs.
	Of course, as usual, if it's cheap enough, I'll buy some too. Either
way, none of my machines really like the 64MB SIMMs, so I at least want to
trade those out.
	My Prioris HX MP/2 5150 (dual P-150s!) when I upgrade it to 4 CPUs,
will use 128 bit interleaved memory, but I need to add 8 SIMMs at a time...

	BTW, I was just thinking... I have 608MB worth of Parity memory, in
pairings...
2  - 64 - 16x36
6  - 32 -  8x36
12 - 16 -  4x36
12 -  8 -  2x36
	Probably could trade these for full sets of either 8x36 or 4x36
SIMMs also. 512MB would be either 16 32MB SIMMs, or 32 16MB SIMMs.
	And no, I'm not looking to sell any. I have more machines (AXPpci33,

install on vs3100 4meg memory

Booting from cdrom 1.5.2 gets:
UVM: pid 11 (sysinst), uid 0 killed: out of swap
Killed
#

at this point I try to add a swapfile on my 1GB sd0

When I type on the system no echo must be a setting
for the install program, disklabel runs but not sure I
got the commands correct and i cannot get swapctl to
add the swap space.

would like commands to turn console echo on, add swap
space on disk, and resume the install.

Is the stty command on the install disk?  Then you can
use "stty echo" to reenable it.

VS 3100 NetBSD 1.5.2 kernel recompile

I've revived my VS3100 KA41 A from the dead and was able to install
1.5.2 on it.

Now, I'm trying to compile a smaller kernel on it, followed the
basic procedure I've used on other ports (dmesg | grep ' at ' ) to
find devices that need to be supported, etc.

The only CPU I set it to have was the "VAX43" CPU, which was
commented to be for the 'VS 3100/76'

But the resulting kernel won't boot. :/

Seeing as how it takes ~2 days to compile, does anyone have any
suggestions that might make it work on the next run? =)

The config I'm using can be viewed at:

http://www.bl.org/~mparson/KREMVAX.txt

and the boot sequence, from power-on through the successful booting
of the GENERIC kernel can be found at:

http://www.bl.org/~mparson/kremvax-boot.txt

A VS3100 /w KA41 should use the VAX410 option. Hm, this should really be
written somewhere :-/

You only have to rerun config(8), do a make depend, and then it will just 
recompile the needed files, which is much faster than two days :-)
