OpenBSD 5.1 released!

I saw the announcement that OpenBSD 5.1 was just released today (May day release?) Anyways I thought I’d boot it up on SIMH to check that the VAX is still working. So here is a minimal ini file, that I used.

set cpu 64m
set rq0 ra92
att rq0 openbsd_vax
set rq1 cdrom
att rq1 cd51.iso
at xq0 bob
boot cpu

I fired up SIMH, and away it went!

KA655-B V5.3, VMB 2.7
