 OS Review: NetBSD 1.6.2 on SPARC64 - OSNews.com
NetBSD is the king of operating system portability, running on 40+ different hardware platforms, including x86, MIPS, and even the Sega Dreamcast.
This NetBSD review is purely for its role as a server as there is no NetBSD support for the PGX frame buffers in the Ultra 5.
NetBSD for SPARC64 is bit different than Solaris or Linux for SPARC, in that NetBSD SPARC64 exists only as a 64-bit operating system.

 Get to know NetBSD
NetBSD's machine-independent driver framework is a unique method of handling device drivers, and it's crucial for simple and quick ports.
In NetBSD, device drivers are written to extend across multiple buses and multiple platforms, enabling developers to include addenda to the device driver's code to add compatibility to a new setup rather than writing a whole new driver.

In contrast to the FreeBSD and OpenBSD, in the NetBSD terminology word "port" means platform and has nothing to do with ports collection.
You may also install older NetBSD 3.0 and use packages for it, however because of security reasons, it is not recommended.

 ONLamp.com -- Palmtop NetBSD
This method requires that you already have a NetBSD machine that can physically accept the disk device you want to install onto, and that has the same sort of disklabel(8) as the Jornada, which means that you need the same endian hardware.
NetBSD runs on a whole bunch of hardware that was never intended to run UNIX, so this install isn't really anything special.
Most of this, I imagine, is in mechanics of the keyboard- the Zaurii have keyboards with mechanisms which are not designed for long stretches of typing; the J7xx's keyboard uses the same kind of mechanism as most laptops.

 Daemon News '200211' : '"Cross-Development with NetBSD "'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
NetBSD 1.6 will contain (and NetBSD-current has today) a new framework to build both the operating system's kernel and the whole userland for either the same platform that the compiler runs on, or for a different platform, using cross-compiling.
In NetBSD terminology, this is called the "toolchain", and it includes BSD-compatible make(1), C/C++ compilers, linker, assembler, config(8), as well as a fair number of tools that are only required when cross-compiling a full NetBSD release, which we won't cover here.

There's a NetBSD mailing list on which I've seen several mails recently, and of which I'm not sure its existance is widely known: The netbsd-jobs mailing list is admittedly fairly low-traffic, but every now and then people publically do admit that they hire NetBSD hackers.

This driver has been modified to fit both the NetBSD loadable kernel modules (and is one of the first network device lkm's) and to conform to NetBSD kernel organization which although similiar to FreeBSD due to their common parentage is different and modifications to the driver organization were required.

 NetBSD - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
NetBSD está basado en una gran variedad de software de libre distribución que incluye entre otros, a 4.4BSD Lite de la Universidad de California-Berkeley, a Net/2 (Berkeley Networking Release 2) el sistema de ventanas X del MIT y software de GNU.
NetBSD ha sido portado a un gran número de arquitecturas de computadores, desde minicomputadores VAX a PDAs Pocket PC; el lema de NetBSD es "Of course it runs NetBSD"" (por supuesto, funciona con NetBSD).
Empezando en NetBSD 1.6, el juego de herramientas completo de compiladores, ensambladores, enlazadores y otras soportan completamente la compilación cruzada, permitiendo compilar un sistema NetBSD completo para una arquitectura desde otro sistema de diferente arquitectura (usualmente más potente), incluso de diferente sistema operativo (el framework de compilación cruzada soporta cualquier sistema POSIX).

 LWN: NetBSD 3.0
NetBSD 3.0 continues our long tradition with major improvements in stability, performance, networking, security, also includes support for two new platforms (iyonix and hp700), and many new peripherals.
Surely there's plenty else for NetBSD developers to be proud of, such as UVM memory management that, with just a bit of care in coding, brings real zero-copy semantics to UNIX read() and write(), and much more cleanly and generally than sendfile().
But portability in the sense NetBSD uses does not mean that there is a maintained or undermaintained patchset somewhere that adds support for some platform.

If you are tracking the netbsd-4 branch, it is a good idea to switch to -current now, and return to netbsd-4 after the re-branch.
NetBSD 3.0.2 and NetBSD 3.1 have been released simultaneously.
NetBSD 3.0.2 is a security/critical-only update for NetBSD 3.0, while NetBSD 3.1 brings much broader improvements, including: Xen3 domU support, LFS stability improvements, Postfix 2.2.11, BIND 9.3.2, msdosfs write optimization, addition of the scan_ffs and scan_lfs tools, driver updates, and many, many other bug fixes and enhancements.

 NetBSD PPTP Client HowTo (www.mrEriksson.net)
PPPD-MPPE is a version of the ppp-daemon that has all the fatures of NetBSD's standard pppd, but also adds functions for encryption using the MPPE-protocol.
Due to the way that NetBSD's kernel handle packages for GRE-interfaces that it doesn't recognize (hasn't created itself), the GRE-interface needs to be removed from the kernel.
Note 1: If pptp finds NetBSD's normal pppd-binary and uses that one instead of the one installed by the ppp-mppe package, you will not be able to use encryption, and most pptp-servers will not accept connections without encryption.

 Laughing Squid » NetBSD Toaster
Yesterday at LinuxWorld 2005 I ran into Jake Appelbaum and he mentioned that upstairs in up the.org Pavillion there was a toaster that was powered by NetBSD (the first open source version BSD, a Unix-like operating system).
John Mc and I went up there and found the candy apple red toaster that was being controlled by NetBSD, and it actually made toast.
The toaster was embedded with NetBSD by Technologic Systems Designs and they have a full report on how they configured the toaster.
