About NetBSD/sparc

NetBSD/sparc is based on work done at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory by the Computer Systems Engineering group under DARPA contract BG 91-66, which later appeared in the 4.4BSD-Lite distribution from the University of California, Berkeley. It was imported into the NetBSD source tree on October 2, 1993. Special thanks are extended to the LBL Computer Systems Engineering group for their work. Without which, this port would not exist.

For frequently asked questions and links to Sun hardware information, see the NetBSD/sparc FAQ.

For newer UltraSPARC-based machines, see NetBSD/sparc64
