While waiting for my C.H.I.P. to update last night, installed OpenBSD 6.8 on a spare RPI3 and going to have it replace my older RPI that's running pihole. :openbsd: :raspberrypi:

@jason123santa @ecliptik RPI2 (armv7) Not really sure exactly what this means:"There are still a fair number of things to do on each of these boards, however OpenBSD is generally considered to be usable on them. The platform is now self hosting, however there is no SMP support."!

No SMP support (specially when the RPI2 has 4× Cortex-A7 900 MHz)!

Maybe is not a good option on "that" platform. I'm gonna have to try on my RPI2s and RPI3s

@braunne @jason123santa OpenBSD has SMP support, my RaspberryPI 3 shows 4 cpus.

OpenBSD did disable SMT (hyperthreading on x86) by default for security reasons due to spectre/meltdown, but it can be re-enabled.
