He is talking about me. :-)
I have some extensions to NetBSD-ofppc in the pipeline that will add
support for this machine. I have two -150 and one B50. The later is a
-150 mainboard in a 19" rack box. Currently I can attach MI PCI and ISA
buses and walk through autoconf(9). I now need to care about interrupts.
I.e. extract interrupt routing intormation from the OpenFirmWare,
programm the interrupt controlers, ... I hope to get something done in
that area in the next weeks.
The goal is to add generic support for all CHRP style (i.e. black) IBM
RS6000 machines with PowerPC CPU. POWER based machines may be easy to
add if we grow MI support for POWER CPUs.
Once the RS6000 stuff works I may have a look at the PegasosPPC and the
EFIKA from GenesiPPC. I already fixed up my PCI stuff to support the
