The arrival of FreeBSD/PPC might give you some cheaper options.

Re: Lower power SMP boxes?


Via just recently announced their new Nehemiah processor capable of smp,
presumably slow as its precursor but also the lowest power consuming
processor at the market (at least with standard socket fcpga motherboard)

Check it out at:

Request for info from SiS chipset owners


I'm currently in the midst of an ATA chipset support mega rewrite/update,
and the last item on the list is SiS support.

That where _you_ come into the picture, I need a pciconf -l from your
SiS based system!

Just reply to this message with the output from pciconf -l and you
have helped me sort out the myriads of SiS chipsets out there.

Hi!Dear FreeBSD!


    Hello,Dear FreeBSD!
My name is Gleb.
I wrote to you from Ukraine(this country is situated in Europe,near Russia).
I live in Kiev -the capital of Ukraine.
I'm a student of National Politecnical University of Ukraine .
I'm very sorry for my english,I know it only for reading some handbooks and man pages.
In my computer class there are several mashins with FreeBSD installed for teaching students.
But I don't want only work with FreeBSD.I want help to develop it's kernel,write programs,drivers.
Please help find more doc's about architecture of it's kernel,how it works,
kernel structs and functions.
I had already read developers-handbook,but it is to hard for me to write
something with this book.I know C and Assembler and good in writing applications.
Help me join some simple project,I would work hardly!Thank you very much!

You could go hunt for the russian translation of
the design of the UNIX operating system. It is freely available on
the net as a bunch of plain text files.

It says "IO/APIC support in future versions".  So, it's not an SMP option
today, as I understand it.

Wouldn't it be best to put him in contact with some of the other

Which brings the question.. who IS in the area..

maybe we should make some sort of geographical registration
web page so that people can find each other?

how many time shave you heard,
