NetBSD 3.0 boots on PowerMac G5!
Sanjay Lal has ported NetBSD 3.0 to the PowerMac G5.
Diffs are in the process of being cleaned up and will
hopefully be posted soon. In the mean time, there's
a dmesg output available - see
Sanjay's posting to the port-macppc list.
There's also a project to
port NetBSD to the G5 architecture
during NetBSD and Google's Summer-of-Code. We'll see how the
two projects related, and if duplicate work can be avoided
by specifying deliverables for the SoC project appropriately.
