I tried out your latest test kernels. Still no go on the Performa 5200, which I also on my PowerBook 3400. It gets the same results as the 5200.
Though with the new kernel the 5200 say something like: MMU: Set BAT for Nubus on Performa instead of saying: MMU: Set BAT for PowerBook / Performa
Still, both the 3400 and 5200 freeze on "MMU:exit" I've tried the 'video=offb:ofonly' and it didn't make any difference. I'll try the 'video=valkyriefb' next.
Oh yeah, and on my PowerBook 5300, I did have a drive specified. (/dev/ram) But nothing was there so that's why it got the kernel panic.
If only I knew more on programming... Still, I would like to figure out how to use git and download the source code.
Thanks for all your hard work. Hope my testing has helped somehow.
