I'm commenting here from a position of ignorance:
Would SGI hardware make good build machines for the architecture? I'm asking
because I have a 3 SGI Octanes I could give away.
Last I checked, stretch kernels did not work on these machines, but I would like
to be wrong.
Is the problem with the linux port, or is it related with Debian's compilation
According to this information from Gentoo
it should be semi-functional, but that information might be out of date.

Best regards,
