OpenBSD on the VAX is no more

bob beck


After much internet speculation, and supporting evidence, it has finally come to pass.

The VAX platform is no longer supported on OpenBSD.

The VAX was the genesis of 32bit BSD UNIX, and once more again a BSD moves away from the ancient origins.

RIP VAX, rest in 32v.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

    • Yeah generating keys on legacy systems is always a drag. I can remember the first time installing on a SUN 5, and once it was generating keys, it was time to take a break.
