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)
aviion Motorola 881x0-based Data General AViiON systems
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.
luna88k Omron LUNA-88K and LUNA-88K2 workstations

Current porting efforts

The following ports are not officially supported, and are not on par with supported platforms, but they are being worked on and may hopefully become supported platforms in the future, if enough progress is made. Be warned that some of these efforts have not shown very much recent activity.

armv7 ARM-based devices, such as BeagleBone, BeagleBoard, PandaBoard ES, SABRE Lite, Nitrogen6x and Wandboard
hppa64 Hewlett-Packard Precision Architecture (PA-RISC) 64 bit systems
solbourne Solbourne ``IDT'' Sparc-like S3000, S4000 and S4000DX systems
