After much internet speculation, and supporting evidence, it has finally come to pass.
The VAX platform is no longer supported on OpenBSD.
The VAX was the genesis of 32bit BSD UNIX, and once more again a BSD moves away from the ancient origins.
RIP VAX, rest in 32v.
Wow, I had no idea that VAX was still supported on any modern operating system. My first brush with UNIX was on a VAX running BSD. (Mt. Xinu)
There is still NetBSD. There was an attempt at getting Linux to run at some point but I think it’s been halted around 2013.
I’ve ran linux on vaxstation3100, 10years ago. It tooks hours to generate ssh RSA/DSA keys
It was always a treat to install a new OpenBSD release in simh, until you got to point where it started generating keys.
Here an old picture of the beasts in Canada where the ISOs came from I believe.
Yeah generating keys on legacy systems is always a drag. I can remember the first time installing on a SUN 5, and once it was generating keys, it was time to take a break.
