hardware to give away

Hash: SHA1

hi debian hackers!

first off, i thank all of you for your efforts, debian and debian- based distributions wouldn't be as good as they are without a porting team as agile and eager as you guys are.

i'm writing today because i have hardware to give away. i'm moving out of a house and into a flat, so there is no space to keep all this stuff anymore. please feel free to contact me with detailed questions about the hardware. it is absolutely free, but given away only on 2 conditions:

a) you have to get it yourself. i will neither ship it nor will i bring it to you by other means. i live in ingolstadt, bavaria, germany. b) you are not allowed to sell it. this is the same term i agreed to when i got most of the hardware, it is and stays free!

here's the list:

6x SGI Indigo2 (mixed green and black, no R10k unfortunately, one has a pc-compatible serial port soldered to it)
1x SGI Challenge S
1x Cobalt CacheRaq 2
1x Cobalt Qube

1x UltraSPARC 30 complete with monitor, keyboard and mouse
1x SparcStation 20 complete with monitor, keyboard and mouse
1x SpacStation 5, keyboard and mouse included.

1x PowerMac 7600/132
1x PowerMac 7300/166

1x Mac Performa 630
1x Mac Quadrata 950
1x Mac IIcx

1x Compaq(!) ProLiant 3HE 2xPentium2 400 with 128 MB of ECC RAM and some fat raid controller (this baby really needs a new home...)

these MIPSen have been lended to me, but i have yet to hear from the owner, so you can queue up for access: 1x SGI Indy (with linux compatible graphics card, iirc. complete with camera and monitor)
1x SGI IRIS Indigo ("the coffee maker")

i can not guarantee all this stuff is working, but it should. i'm pretty sure one of the monitors was broken, so that info might be off a bit. most of the disks have been completely wiped, the machines were donations by companies using them beforehand, so you know why that's kinda obvious.

background information: i have been maintainer of the ROCK Linux MIPS and SPARC ports, and done some work on PowerPC, too. I guess you know the SGI IRIS Indigo is not supported (R3000), and that the Indigo2 have graphics cards unsupported by linux. I have no clue about m68k.

please respond soon, i will have to get rid of this enormous amount of matter as of around august 25th.

be safe,


P.S.: sorry for cross-posting on all the lists, i admit i'm lazy
P.P.S.: please CC me in case of on-list discussions/questions, i am not subscribed to any of your lists. thanks.
