[20090501] NetBSD 5.0 based Cobalt/Raq restore CD available
Izumi Tsutsui has released a version of his Cobalt restore/install CD based on NetBSD 5.0.

What is it? Citing from the Restore CD HowTo: `` The Cobalt Qube/Raq is a server appliance. To put it simply, they are just computers without keyboard and monitor and without the ability to attach one. There are several versions of Qubes and Raqs in existence, older MIPS based and newer AMD-K6 based. [...]

Because the Qube does not have an easy way to attach a monitor, a keyboard and most importantly a CDROM drive, there is no easy way to install a new operating system on it. This is where the Restore CD comes in. The Qube has the ability to boot an operating system over the network. A Restore CD provides the environment allowing the Qube to boot an operating system and perform an unattended install of the operating system onto hard drive. ''

[20051101] NetBSD on Intel-Cobalt/Sun Raqs - more data
Dave Barnes has sent more information about this to port-i386 and port-cobalt (which I can NOT find on either mail-index.NetBSD.org nor GMane, even as the replies to it are there...?!), describing issues and solutions for running NetBSD on (Intel-equipped) Sun machines. Points seem to be that you need a recent ROM, use a small(!) bzip2'd kernel, need a serial port that can handle 115kBd and can't neither automatically boot to multiuser mode nor reboot/halt the machine without power-cycling. See Dave's NetBSD on x86 RAQ webpage for a lot more data.

[20051031] NetBSD on Intel(!) Cobalt/Sun Raqs
Apparently it *is* possible to run NetBSD on the Intel-equipped Cobalt/Sun Raq machines, running of course NetBSD/i386 as opposed to NetBSD/cobalt, which is for the Cobalt cube and raq machines with MIPS CPUs. See this posting on the Cobalt ROM list for a partial dmesg.
