FreeBSD/alpha Project

This page contains information about porting FreeBSD to HP/Compaq Alpha systems.


As of FreeBSD 7.0, support for the Alpha platform has been removed. The development of new Alpha systems has been discontinued by the hardware vendor; this combined with the widespread deployment of more mainstream 64-bit platforms, such as the AMD64 and Intel EM64T architectures, has resulted in significantly reduced user and developer community interest.

FreeBSD/alpha mailing list

Because of the dropped support for the Alpha plattform the mailing list freebsd-alpha has been closed. Although it is no longer possible to send messages to this mailing list, the archives can still be searched or browsed.
