OpenBSD runs on HUGE list of Sun SPARC systems -- T1, T2 support coming in 4.4


OpenBSD and Niagara Support

Back in April I wrote that Mark Kettenis had succeeded in porting OpenBSD to the  SPARC Enterprise T1000 server.  Well just last week he reported that he had started working with the UltraSPARC T2 system that he received.   According to him and Bob Beck, the next release of OpenBSD (4.4) will ship with UltraSPARC T1 and T2 support in the sparc64 release.

The Laundry List

Theo DeRaadt, founder of OpenBSD, was also copied on this thread and sent the following list and comment (I'll have to agree, it is pretty impressive):

The current list of sparc64 machines that we now run on is a pretty impressive list. It starts all the way from the original machine to Sun's newest.

There are still a few SPARC systems OpenBSD doesn't run on but given the tenacity of this team I'm sure its only a matter of time ;)  (Speaking of which, I'm going to see if I can help them locate a Tadpole Viper)


Pau 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.
