Re: OT: Set OpenBoot input device
Thank you very much for your input, Chris and Klaus!
I found a lucky solution I had not expected. At one more reboot, the
NetBSD kernel found that it had mounted the root fs for many times.
The following fsck failed and I got dropped into single user mode.
There I found that NetBSD has an eeprom command, too, which allowed me
to reset the eeprom setting.

Yes, that's why my serial approach failed in the first time. I was
using a standard 9-pin-female to 9-pin-female no-modem cable. But
after I have read some docs at sun.com, I found out that the
9-pin-male connector at the back of the Ultra 5 is ttyb and not ttya.
ttya is a 25-pin-female connector instead of the 25-pin-male connector
I know out of the pc world. I think I need to buy an adaptor.
