NetBSD on a Sun SPARCstation 2

  View Printable Version 
OpenBSD/NetBSDInspired by the success with my Ultra 1, I brushed the dust off another old machine: the Sun SPARCstation 2. Mine is actually labeled "Nokia Data" "Alfaskop S30". Anyway, after a bit off fiddling, I got it to boot (the logs shows that it was last booted in September 2002!). It turns out that it runs NetBSD:
root@sparc2# uname -a
NetBSD sparc2.kg4.no 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Aug 22 04:33:09 CST 2001     toor@proxima:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/GENERIC sparc
Way, way cool.

OpenBSD/NetBSDNetBSD version 5.0 has been released. This is the thirteenth major release of the NetBSD operating system. The biggest area of improvement in NetBSD 5.0 is symmetric multiprocessing (SMP). There is also a huge number of other changes, such as the "jemalloc" memory allocator, Xorg instead of XFree86 in some ports, the Power Management Framework, ACPI suspend/resume on many laptops, and much, much more.
