I came home today to find my network unresponsive, and I have managed to narrow the culprit down to my OpenBSD 4.3 firewall. I attempted to power cycle it, but now at boot time it hangs, and all I get is the basic banner message.
Using drive 0, partition 3. Loading..... probing: pc0 apm mem[639K 31M a20=on] disk: hd0+ >> OpenBSD/i386 BOOT 2.10 boot>
The "boot> " prompt at the end automatically backspaces away after a few seconds. Is that by design? If not, what does it signify? I have to maintain this machine so rarely that I have forgotten what normal behavior looks like.
