Anyone here installed OBSD on sparc architecture? More specifically on an Ultra60?

i've installed on Ultra 1E's but that's it for sparc64.

Checking the 3.2 release notes for the sparc64 port ultra 60's are supported but checking through spacr@ reveals that only one ultra60 box has ever successfully been installed. I think I'm gonna try to get it working and publish my notes and then crosspost to sparc@.

Maybe. Thats my plan rioght now anyway.

Well I got OpenBSD 3.2 up and running on it, even complied a couple of packages. I has to dd the miniroot filesystem into the existing solaris swap partition to get it to boot the installer. That seems to have done the trick. Now getting X running and putting something useful on it is another story. We'll see how that goes tmorrow night.
