Searching for ppc64 on NetBSD's website:

site:www.netbsd.org "ppc64"

didn't returned any good hits..


My question: Does NetBSD supports the ppc64 architecture? Would it work OK on an ex.: POWER7?

The: http://www.netbsd.org/ports/ shows many powerpc's, but how can I be sure that it will work on a POWER7?


Power 7 is not the same as PowerPC. Unless your specific machine is expliclity listed as supported in one of the powerpc ports - see http://www.netbsd.org/ports/ at bottom - you will most likely not be able to install NetBSD successfully.

For non-experts on non-x86 hardware, your best bet is most likely just using what the vendor recommends.
