I seem to recall someone mentioning installing obsd 3.0 snapshot on a SiS 735
based motherboard a while ago, so I figured I'd throw this out in case my
memory was correct.
I attempted today to install 3.0 snapshot on a couple of home machines today.
One of them was a 1.2 ghz Athlon system on a SiS 735 mobo. The boot process
hangs directly after the floppy controller is detected.
Here's the specs:
1.2 ghz Athlon
Elitegroup K7S5A motherboard
256 Megs PC2100 DDR-SDRAM
3Com 3c905C-TX Fast Etherlink XL
20 gig Western Digital ata100 hd
NVidia Riva Ultra Vanta TNT2 card
If someone else DID indeed install a 3.0 snapshot on a SiS 735, would you
please email me with what sort of hardware config you were using? I'd like to
try to figure out why the boot process hangs (maybe a hardware conflict with
some other card in the system?) before filling out a bug report.
Oh, 2.9 worked fine on this system, although I am currently runing FreeBSD
4.4 on it.
