Ok, will check that too

I actually burned an OpenBSD 6.3 (sparc64 install63.iso) CD too. just to see if that would work,
(https://www.openbsd.org/sparc64.html claims that "Oracle SPARC T4-1" is classified as a "known or expected to work”.

But it resulted in the same:  "The file just loaded does not appear to be executable”

I tried "eject cdrom”, and that ejected the cd, so it seem to point right...
Anyway, I will see if the devalias needs to be adjusted. Maybe it’s as simple as that...
