[20080302] Cobalt Qube 2700 progress
Izumi Tsutsui has made progress on getting NetBSD/cobalt going on the Cobalt Qube 2700, the "original" cube and first product released by Cobalt Networks back then. Interesting nit from the wikipedia page: apparently the "2700" model number came from the atonic number of cobalt: 27. The company was later on purchased by Sun Microsystems, which still has things like the Qube 2700 manual online.

Izumi got the machine going to a point where it can be booted from network and the internal IDE disk, show the dmesg output, and talk to the built-in LCS display. See Izumi's messages here and here for more information.
