install 3.8 on hppa using lif38.fs

Jimmy Scott
Hello,

I tried to install a few machines with OpenBSD/hppa 3.8 without success.

In the past I installed them with OpenBSD 3.6, switched them the hard
way to use the serial console (using machine) and threw away the
horrible big and noisy (and compatible :/) screens.

When I boot the lif38.fs image, the boot prompt appears (where I can
still enter some commands), the kernel boots, ask me to install or
upgrade, and this is where I got stuck. I could not enter anything. I
tried booting with a keyboard attached to the HIL or PS/2 (depending on
machine) without success (still using rs232 as console).

I tried using lif36.fs to verify if this ever worked, and it did.
Is there something new not mentioned in the INSTALL file I should know
about? or any solutions to fix the netboot? Maybe I overlooked
something.

The machines I've tried:
        9000/715/64
        9000/712/80
        9000/712/100

Kind regards,
Jimmy Scott

since you mention you have hardcoded to serial console in the prom
does it work olrite on the cereal then?
if you switch your console (in the prom) to kbd/video does
it behave then?

Yes it does, when I booted lif36.fs I could type 'i' etc to start the
installation, even typing at the prom or 'boot>' prompt went fine.

This is a very good question, but I do not have any compatible screens
anymore. Changing it now will render the machine unusable for me. My
assumption is that there is something wrong with the keyboard emulation
or mapping in the kernel, but I know very little about the kernel's
design; which need to change soon or later.

Today I planned to try openbsd 3.7 and do a diff between the dmesg of a
3.7 and a 3.8 kernel.

I noticed that 'com0: console' was missing from 2nd. But I tried to use
the keyboard .. and for some reason it works today?! I could not believe
it since I switched the cable to several other machines. I tried several
other machines and they all were OK today! The only thing that comes to
my mind is that the machine I was using 'cu' on was installed with
OpenBSD 3.8 today instead of the FreeBSD 4.9 image I was using that day.

This could perfectly explain that there was no real error in the OpenBSD
image as things first looked (because the 3.6 image had no problems),
but there seemed to be a problem while using FreeBSD 4.9's 'cu'.

I hope I didn't waste to much of your time, or any time at all.
Otherwise I'm sorry for that.

Kind regards,
Jimmy Scott
