Supported platforms

OpenBSD is officially supported on the following platforms. Official support means that the release install media is known to work, that the architecture can self-compile itself, and that most of the basic tools exist on the architecture. As well, new releases always exist, and there are attempts to make snapshots available on a regular basis.

alpha Digital Alpha-based systems
amd64 AMD64-based systems
armish ARM-based appliances (by Thecus, IO-DATA, and others)
hp300 Hewlett-Packard HP 9000 series 300 and 400 workstations
hppa Hewlett-Packard Precision Architecture (PA-RISC) systems
i386 Standard PC and clones based on the Intel i386 architecture and compatible processors
landisk IO-DATA Landisk systems (such as USL-5P) based on the SH4 cpu
loongson Loongson 2E- and 2F-based systems, such as the Lemote Fuloong and Yeeloong, Gdium Liberty, etc.
macppc Apple New World PowerPC-based machines, from the iMac onwards
mvme68k Motorola 680x0-based VME systems
mvme88k Motorola 881x0-based VME systems
sgi SGI MIPS-based workstations
socppc Freescale PowerPC SoC-based machines
sparc Sun sun4, sun4c, sun4e and sun4m class SPARC systems
sparc64 Sun UltraSPARC and Fujitsu SPARC64 systems
vax Digital VAX-based systems
zaurus Sharp Zaurus C3x00 PDAs

Stagnant ports

The following platforms have been supported in the past, but releases are not being built for them at the moment. However, they are still living in the source tree, and releases might happen again in the future.

luna88k Omron LUNA-88K and LUNA-88K2 workstations
mac68k Motorola 680x0-based Apple Macintosh with MMU

Active porting efforts

The following ports are not officially supported, and are not on par with supported platforms, but they are being worked on actively and may hopefully become supported platforms in the future. There is normally no official release for these architectures yet, but normally the in-progress source code is checked into the repository, and there is an attempt to start making snapshots.

aviion Motorola M881x0-based Data General AViiON systems
hppa64 Hewlett-Packard Precision Architecture (PA-RISC) 64 bit systems
palm Palm/PXA based PDAs
solbourne Solbourne ``IDT'' Sparc-like S3000, S4000 and S4000DX systems

Quiet porting efforts

The following porting efforts have not shown very much activity, and are far from being usable yet; however, there are people working on them so they may hopefully become supported platforms in the future.

romp IBM RT/PC systems

Discontinued ports

The following platforms have been supported in the past, but have been discontinued for various reasons, and might be supported again in the future.

amiga Amiga and DraCo systems with MMU
arc ARC compatible MIPS R4k and R5k systems
cats StrongARM 110 Evaluation Board
pegasos Pegasos machines by Genesi Sarl. PowerPC-based, VIA chip motherboards.
pmax Digital MIPS-based systems
sun3 Sun sun3 class systems
