OpenBSD/luna88k resource page
The original work
This port has been done by Kenji Aoyama. His own detailed OpenBSD/luna88k
resource page used to be found at
Until it goes back on line, there is still some content available at
As the time of the last update of this page,
OpenBSD 5.8 is the latest release.
Current Todo List
(in no particular order)
- Improve stability on the LUNA-88K system I have been given (16MB memory,
triggering more `out-of-memory' issues and physical page reuse, exposing
cache and pmap bugs).
- Improve the bootloader (using the MI codebase)
- Build LUNA-88K serial cables.
As researched by
the LUNA-88K serial ports use Micro 70
Hirose connectors. The outlet
on the LUNA-88K is ref. QM10-14R(L)-PR; a matching cable would match
either QM30-14PA-EP IDC Plug with a QM14-CS cover with locking
latches, or a QM30-14P-EP IDC Plug with a QM14-CV cover
I am trying to get a quote for a few QM40 and QM14 parts
(QM40 is a solder type connector, which will be easier than
QM30 for my
minionsco-workers to solder the other end of a
``regular'' serial cable).
For the record, pin assignment can be found

- Get another LUNA-88K or a LUNA-88K2 machine.
This will probably be quite difficult in Europe... but one can hope!
- Luna-specific manual pages (section 4 and 8) (in progress).
