Installing OpenBSD on a Vintage Macintosh




I gotta admit, it was pretty fscking cool to watch a UNIX-like operating system boot up on the same hardware I was using at home ten or twelve years ago.



Before I get started, I'm going to spoil the ending. OpenBSD on an SE/30 with 5 MB of RAM is about as usefull as a moped in Nascar. Just about everything you do makes the thing thrash around in vm like a beached whale. I'm holding onto the OpenBSD partition as a party trick, but I don't think I'll actually be using it. Instead, I'm just running MacOS and ZTerm or MacSSH, and making a connection to my primary box.
