Morphos With a delay of a few days, Genesi has released the schematics to its Pegasos Rev.2b5 motherboard. You can download it from here, but you'll need to sign up (free) on Power.org. They even blogged about it, stating: "If you are just along for the ride you can stop reading now. Your challenge: be the best you can be. That is the competition. We are in the human line that stretches behind and beyond us. We all can have a role to play. To participate we have to start within ourselves, find firm footing, and launch into the world around us."

This shouldn't be a relevant problem.

Internal firmware of Pegasos motherboard is SMART FIRMWARE, a firmware inspired by OPEN FIRMWARE, and it follows same guidelines.

So it there should be no difficulty to port BSD version of Open Firmware to Open Pegasos layout (since the moment it will be completely made open to public).
