Any plans for porting drivers for X11 from NetBSD for O2? + Maximum that is now in the X11 on OpenBSD is an 8-bit color ... = (

Eventually, yes. But probably not soon, since both Joel Sing and I are busy with other stuff.

Is 'porting' really involved? They can't just be compiled on OpenBSD?

There are probably a few lines of code to add to the kernel driver to allow the X11 userland driver to mmap the various control registers it needs to play with. Nothing particularly difficult.

We can get it in OpenBSD 4.9? Or no chance?

no chance.
If you check on the ftp in snapshots releases you can see it's not 4.9 yet

ftp://ftp.eu.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/sgi/

I'm afraid I don't know the future. 4.9 is months ahead...

not yet.
I don't know if miod has started to make a driver in the actual snapshot.

For what it's worth, recent OpenBSD/sgi snapshots (attempt to) run on the Indy (as well as R4k Indigo and R4k Indigo2), so the IP22 work happened eventually :mrgreen:

OpenBSD/sgi 5.2 is now out, with IP28 support! Thanks a lot miod, time to dig out the Indigo2 IMPACT R10k and give it a spin.

I had random crashes on my O2 with 5.1 during makeworld, I'll probably give this one a shot. I think it might have been a bug Miod was working on earlier this year. He's done so much for this port, I should have at least provided him with a trace. I'll test and do that.

You're the guy with an RM7000 O2, aren't you?

Yes, is this a hardware bug?

Hah! I wish it was. (Hmm, come to think of it, and given how much hair I have lost due to hardware bugs, I might not wish that much :mrgreen: )

No, there are issues on RM7000 since a few releases, which I'm afraid I couldn't figure out the cause of. But this definitely smells like a (subtle) software problem. In the meantime, running 16KB page size kernels (adding an "option PAGE_SHIFT=14" line to GENERIC-IP32) appears to work fine.

I still hope to eventually realize what is wrong and fix the bug... but I've been quite blind to the issue so far.
