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
for more information.
