ANNOUNCE: OpenBSD/alpha snapshot available

i send this to all 3 lists because i (and niklas) got a lot of queries
for this in the last time - so i hope anyone will get the information

i just want to let you know that i have uploaded a second "snapshot" of
OpenBSD/alpha to


it contains a complete snapshot of the system but is still missing a
miniroot - so you need either a NetBSD miniroot or a running NetBSD
system or you can also use the miniroot from the last OpenBSD/alpha


to install it - the miniroot will follow in the next days - but
i know that i won't have the time for it in the next 2-3 days - so i
wanted to get at least this snapshot out that someone who knows what
to do can start with OpenBSD/alpha - so this is not really intended for
the "end user" - more for the interested develloper :-)

so far OpenBSD/alpha runs fine (i have it running on a udb (multia) -
but it should also run fine on all the other NetBSD/alpha supported
systems - if you like to run X on it (currently only on the udb
(multia)) - you can get the NetBSD/alpha X11 from their ftp servers

... but there's also a lot of work to be done on OpenBSD/alpha - so
come on and help us ... :-)

as soon as i get the miniroot ready i'll upload this snapshot to the
usual OpenBSD ftp servers

... anything forgotten ? - i hope not - if you have any questions
simply send me a mail ... 

... and not to forget: lots of thanks to niklas - who has done most of
the "deeper" work on OpenBSD/alpha


p.s.: ... just to let you know - i'll try to bring all my local
      changes for compiling OpenBSD/alpha withing the next 3-4 days
      into the OpenBSD tree - so that you then can rebuild your system
      easily - also niklas has lot's of changes to commit ...

  perfection is reached, not when there is no longer anything to add, but when
      there is no longer anything to take away    antoine de saint-exupery
