Well. I had some strange hickups and the like on my B132L. (E.g. the
machine hung for some time, spilled out SCSI errors, didn't respond to
pings for some time under load.) My 715/100XC had similar problems, but
less frequent.

Nerver trust a 1.0 release. ;-)

But when we are talking about machines of the 500 MHz EV56 Alpha, Sun
U30, ... class, we are in the PA8000 range. Does OpenBSD/hppa support
PA8000 machines?
