[20051101] NetBSD on Intel-Cobalt/Sun Raqs - more data
Dave Barnes has sent more information about this to port-i386 and port-cobalt (which I can NOT find on either mail-index.NetBSD.org nor GMane, even as the replies to it are there...?!), describing issues and solutions for running NetBSD on (Intel-equipped) Sun machines. Points seem to be that you need a recent ROM, use a small(!) bzip2'd kernel, need a serial port that can handle 115kBd and can't neither automatically boot to multiuser mode nor reboot/halt the machine without power-cycling. See Dave's NetBSD on x86 RAQ webpage for a lot more data.
