NetBSD support Alphaserver 300 / 400
first of all: Hello. I just subscribed to this list - after sucessfully
installing NetBSD to a PWS500 with a KZPAC/Mylex Raid Controller. I have
some minor experience with the prep port, installed that on a RS/6000
43P some years ago, but that machine has been sold some time ago. I have
been working with FreeBSD a lot (used to be port maintainer for lam-mpi
(parallel computing) and treepuzzle (biological software)). I came here
because NetBSD seems to be the last free OS paying real attention to the
Alpha architecture - after FreeBSD skipping it totally and Debian
seeming to have trouble to get the next release finished on the Alpha.
So first off, what can I contribute to actually keep the development of
NetBSD/Alpha ongoing? Is just running -current enough or are there more
things that can be done (I am no developer, though, but quite able to
patch, compile, etc ....).
Second question: Will NetBSD run on the Alphaserver 300 or 400? I could
not find it on the supported hardware list.
