Over the last few weeks I've made some important improvements to the OpenBSD/hppa port. Support for newer B/C/J-class workstations was added, and basically anything but the C8000 should just work. I've also fixed a rather critical bug, which makes machines with a PA-7200 CPU usable again (and makes machines with other CPU's much more stable). And last but not least, support for the NCR 53C720 Fast-Wide SCSI found on many hppa machines has been added to siop(4).
With all these changes, I have reason to believe that most of the so far unsupported D-class and K-class servers should just work, or will work with just a small tweak to the code here and there. Unfortunately I don't have such hardware myself, so if people have access to one of these machines, could they give the latest snapshot a go on them and send me (and email@example.com) a copy of the dmesg?
So go to your favorite mirror, download and install the latest snapshot and send your dmesg in!
