I have a couple Dec Alpha PC164s. I have tried MANY about seven (7)
different distros about a year ago. I'm using the SRM console. The ONLY
distro I could get up and running without kernel panic at best was DEBIAN's
distro. It was/is a lot of fun using and learning Debian. My question is,
does any one else on this list have a PC164 running anything other than
Debian ? If so was it very painful ? I'm not talented enough to rewrite a
kernel or the like to get it to work. I tried, Red Hat (around
7.something-ish I think), NetBSD, FreeNSD, Slack, and a couple others I
cannot think of at the moment. I really like the apt-get solution. I don't
know if this is exclusive to Debian, but IMHO it's nifty.
Thanks for the time and bandwidth. I am anticipating some interesting
responses, since I have a couple other boxes, I could try (same
PC164 --Panda boxes not sure of console yet.)
Thanks in advance.
