This page lists various developer hardware needs. If you are interested in supporting the FreeBSD Project, you might consider donating some piece of hardware on this list to the Project.

We provide the FreeBSD username of the developer who needs a resource, the country they are in (for shipping purposes), the equipment they desire, and the use to which that equipment will be put.

For information on tax deductions and process, please see the information on the main FreeBSD Donation Liaison office page.

If you would like to donate something on this list, please contact donations@FreeBSD.org.

On a general note, we need a variety of Sparc 64 machines for testing and improving our new Sparc port. Even small, old (or new!) Sparc 64 machines are perfectly usable. No matter which country you're in, we almost certainly have someone local who could use it. We could specifically use 1U rack-mounted Sparcs (such as E220R, E420R, Fire V100, Fire V120, or Netra T1 AC200) for our development and package-building clusters in the USA.

lioux Brazil Books on the any of the following subjects: network protocol scheduling (bandwidth/transmission efficiency), process scheduling, scheduling theory in general, digesting (checksums, particularly fine grained checksumming for detection partial file corruption; e.g., tiger trees, sha1 trees), corruption detection and recovery (files, network protocol, etc), distributed processing (localization transparency, migration, redundancy, repartition, scheduling, message passing, shared memory, etc), peer to peer technology, device driver writing and operational system theory Improve my knowledge regarding operational systems and modern computer science challenges/technologies. For example, I want to write an improved downloading mechanism for FreeBSD distribution (ports and base) that supports graceful corruption detection/recovery, FTP/HTTP/other/it's own protocol, multi-part download, multi-server support, load distribution. Not all at once but in the long term. Most of this knowledge will be reverted to FreeBSD if I can

marcel CA, USA Supermicro SuperServer 6113M-i. The machine is a 2-way Itanium 2 (Madison) machine in a 1U rackmount casing. Replacement machine for the BigSur I have now. The machine is based on the Intel E8870 chipset, which is very common but which we don't have among the active developers.
marcel CA, USA IBM xSeries 450. The machine is a 4-way Itanium 2 (Madison) based on the IBM XA-64 chipset. Package build machine in the FreeBSD cluster (aka bento). This machine in particular because of the unique chipset and the fact that it has 4 processors. This makes it an ideal machine for parallel package builds during normal operation and a validation box for release engineering.
