IBM RS6000 with MCA


Hello there,

I still have an IBM Rs6000, is there any chance that NetBSD will run on such a 
machine?
Sincerely,

arend

Possibly. I have one of these too. Can seem to get any video output or
response from keyboard. Does anyone know if it is possible to get a
serial console on one of these beasts?

I'm eager to answer "of course", but it may depend on a lot of things.
Hunting for the manuals probably sheds light on this.

Even if you do get serial console, it's a whole other matter whether
there is anything that's sending output there. The models I have are
very silent until you boot Aix or diagnostics.
