Hi, I've been lurking here for a while. I'm not sure if this is a
OpenBSD question or a DecAlpha question or just a general Unix
question. But here goes:
If I boot the machine without a keyboard, it apparently tries to use the
serial port as a console. How do I turn this feature off? This box is
going to do PPP/NAT for my house-net. I don't want to run it with a
monitor or keyboard.
My ethernet interface works fine. When I boot with a keyboard plugged
in, the serial interface works fine too. When I boot without a keyboard,
my ISDN terminal adapter's RD/SD leds light up, and the boot seems to
hang until I unplug the terminal adapter. Then, if plug it back in and I
run ppp in interactive mode, it hangs or I get garbage, stuff like
login: and password: and lots of junk.
OpenBSD 2.4 GENERIC#16 Alpha PC AXPpci33 ("NoName")
Sorry if this was long winded.
