MacMini G4 1.2GHz.
I've re-checked with latest 7.1-BETA ISO, indeed if I am holding 'C' key
the messages are displayed correctly, so that my checkin comment is
However, the issue is that if I set boot-device in NVRAM to
"cd:,\boot\loader cd:" or to "cd:,\boot\loader hd:6" (I use the latter
to routinely bootstrap my Mini which has no HFS partitions) the screen
remain gray and blank even though the FreeBSD boots unless I do
ALT-CMD-O-F. With those two changes, both loader and kernel access
console just fine.
Am I doing something wrong?
