sun4_40 is now happy enough with my latest pull request that you can initialize the IDPROM, though apparently the SCSI and DMA support isn't solid enough to boot off a SCSI device.

First, booting up sun4_40 with -keyboard sparckbd will give you, by default, a SPARCstation IPC with 16 megs of RAM installed, and a bad IDPROM checksum:



You should press the N key on your keyboard to enter the Forth monitor. We can now update the IDPROM using instructions found here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.sys.sun.admin/3eVsqoD8jVQ



byte 0: always 01
byte 1: first byte of host ID, machine ID (0x52, SPARCstation IPC)
bytes 2-7: MAC address, always starts with 08:00:20
bytes 8-b: Manufacture date, in my case 20160722
bytes c-e: Remaining three bytes of host ID
byte f: checksum (XOR of bytes 0-e)

After you do this, and make sure to type everything correctly, you can type "reset" to reboot the machine. At this point, you will see that it doesn't complain about the IDPROM checksum anymore.



Here's a crash course on Forth, followed by an interesting little Forth trinket.



It's a Mandelbrot generator! Courtesy of Lord_Nightmare for knowing the Forth snippet.

To be pedantic, Sun Manufacture dates are in Big-endian Unix timestamp format, so it should be 1469157122 (57 91 8f 02) or so.

Still it's AWESOME to see that all running now smile

After my check-ins, the choices for -keyboard are type3hle, type4hle and type5hle. The defaults are type3hle for sun3, type4hle for sun4, and type5hle for sun4c. The most important keys are all mapped to what you'd expect. The R group on type 3 maps to numpad. The L/Solaris group and the sound/brightness/power group aren't mapped by default.

Working on a post for 'os install thread' -- RT-11 installation in SIMH with console in MAME. Mostly works, but SIMH appears to have bug somewhere that causes post-install check ("IND VERIFY") to fail -- it builds runs a small terminal identification tool and this tool doesn't get a response in time, even from a xterm.



However, my modified T11 core and associated PDP-11 clone driver passes this test:

Is it wrong that I almost literally yelled "T2!" when I saw the GIT commit? smile

Anyway, that's awesome work Curt!
