The pmax port of OpenBSD was started by Thomas Graichen (graichen@OpenBSD.org) shortly before the OpenBSD 2.0 release. It is currently without a maintainer. If you would like to maintain the port, hardware is available so please send mail. From the pmax specific code it is heavily based on NetBSD/pmax. I want to take the chance here to say thanks to Dieter Mayer and Rob Urban for supplying me (Thomas) with the hardware to do the development on. Also i want to thank all the people from the NetBSD/pmax team and mailinglists especially Jonathan Stone and Michael Hitch for their help in many situations. If you are interested in getting OpenBSD/pmax you can either use the latest formal release of OpenBSD or one of the snapshots of OpenBSD/pmax if you are interested in tracking the current state - you may get them both from the usual OpenBSD ftp servers.
Despite of the fact that the hardware specific code in OpenBSD/pmax doesn't differ much from NetBSD/pmax there are for the system as a whole some ...
OpenBSD/pmax currently supports the following machines:
OpenBSD/pmax does currently not run on:
Per Fogelstrom (pefo@OpenBSD.org) now also has one of the r4000 cpu upgraded decstations ... so i expect support for them sometime in the future.
If something is wrong here - please let me know!
Keep in mind that you need a monitor which can do sync on green- because all the above framebuffers give sync on green output. Also the monitor should be multisync-capable or it should have a dec-compatible fixed frequency. All the above framebuffers should be supported by the x server too.
