HelenOS/sparc64

History

The sparc64 port was created by Jakub Jermar as part of his master thesis which was defended in 2007. The initial port supported UltraSPARC II and similar processors. In 2008, Pavel Rimsky, as part of his master thesis, enhanced that support to new processors based on the UltraSPARC III processor. In 2010, he added support for the UltraSPARC T1 processor.

Status

The port is fully supported by the HelenOS team and supports the standard set of features offered by HelenOS. Hardware support is limited to few Sun workstations and servers.

Supported hardware

Several workstations and servers are supported. Multiprocessors are supported. The Simics simulator is usable with HelenOS/sparc64. The Qemu sparc64 machine became somewhat usable recently, but is missing the interrupt controller.
