     I work with FreeBSD on the Power(PC) series. I'd like to see some documentation on BSD on Power systems available.

     Scooty-cat, thanks for the suggestion. We will look into it.

    Scooty-cat, it sounds like we may have some common interests. Long live Power!
     
    While I suspect that we can share information/documentation, I don't believe we'll be able to assist much with development.  IBM committed to PowerLinux over 10 years ago when it started the ppc64 Linux kernel community.   This investment remains part of a larger, on-going commitment by IBM to support Linux as a cross-platform OS--allowing customers, users, software providers, and business partners to preserve their investment in an operating environment while leveraging the benefits each hardware platform provides.
     
    However, we've likely done things and/or will do things in Linux which can help with a PowerPC FreeBSD port.  Per your other posting to our Message Board, there likely is documentation we've made available which would be helpful to you.  So, feel free to continue to ask questions like that and we'll do our best to help another "open source colleague".
