NetBSD/hp300 1.2

NetBSD/hp300 1.2 was the third formal release of NetBSD/hp300.

A maintenance release, NetBSD 1.2.1, was made available on May 20, 1997. It incorporated no new functionality, but contained hundreds of fixes for bugs and security holes. The rest of this page applies to both 1.2 and 1.2.1.

Jason Thorpe was the maintainer of NetBSD/hp300 at the time of the 1.2 release.

Supported Hardware

NetBSD/hp300 1.2 will run on most HP 9000/300- and 400-series machines. The smallest amount of RAM that has been tested is 4M. If you wish to run X, more RAM is recommended.

Recommended HD partition sizes for a full install:

root (/) 15M 10M
user (/usr)80M 45M
swap (2 or 3 * RAM)6M (miniroot)
(Anything else is up to you!)

NOTE: The hp300 installation procedure uses a `miniroot' filesystem which is placed into the swap area of the disk. The swap partition must be large enough to hold this miniroot image.

Devices supported by NetBSD/hp300 1.2 include:

If you have a device that's not listed, it might be compatible with something else, or we might have simply forgotten it. If all else fails, maybe you could write a driver!


Supported Boot Options

NetBSD/hp300 1.2 supports booting from SCSI and HP-IB disks (SYS_PBOOT) and via local area network (SYS_NBOOT).

If you're interested in NetBSD/hp300 you should use a more recent version.
