Reading the replies, not from the screen, but printed, I notice
a comment from Tony. This could be important!
Of course you might still have an open NPG jumper on
where the DL11-W is (this card does not short CA1 to CB1).
That's an eye-opener for me! I thought that the DL11 would
short CA1 to CB1. I guess that some cards that do not use DMA
(NPR) short these 2 pins and some *do not*.
Since the machine was originally with a remote console,
(hard lesson: DO take notes on any action you do to a PDP-11,
if you do: make better/more elaborate ones), I think that there
was no DL11 in it, but the Unibus serial remote console M8255
was in slot #40. I swapped the M8255 for an M7856.
Now, if the M8255 *does* bridge/use NPR ...
I will check this evening of course, no matter what pops up!
I will do the other tests anyway, and make notes! They will
be very useful for future reference.
Again, thanks all so far,
