OpenBSD on UltraSPARC T1 - Done!

A few months ago I mentioned that Mark Kettenis was making quite a bit of progress in his efforts to port OpenBSD to the  SPARC Enterprise T1000 server.  Well last night this was posted:

Yesterday I committed the last bit of code to support machines with Sun's UltraSPARC T1 CPUs. Below is a dmesg for the SPARC Enterprise T1000, and although other machines have not been tested yet, machines like the SPARC Enterprise T2000 and Sun Blade T6300 are expected to work too. As you can see, we support SMP right from the start.

Whats this European code-slinger extraordinaire now working on?

LDOM support is not yet complete; I'm still working on drivers for virtual network interfaces and virtual disks. But domains with access to real hardware should work fine.

And after that we'll have to see what he can do with a T2 ;)

Congrats Mark!

Paul for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
