[pups] Booting V6 on 11/34 vs 11/34A ??

That RK05 image boots on an 11/34A just fine.   (I own one.  Trust me.  It 
just works.  No fiddling required).

Perhaps you have a plain 11/34, and perhaps there is some difference that 

But they should both have MMU, but perhaps the MMU in the 34A is different 
than a 34 in some odd way.

Do you have floating point?  Maybe that's the problem.

You could always try mini-unix...  8-)  That should run (it ran on an 11/20).

Yes, but it doesn't boot on an 11/34 :(
That's the problem.
