Re: IBM 7025-F50
I will try some debian installs on it.
For some unknown reason, i like unix boxes :)
So far i tried debian on HP 720, SUN 10, IBM p710 LPAR.
I also have one INDY/MIPS, SUN BLADE 1000 waiting for linux.
And nearby is one HP L2000 and one HP rx4000 series server as candidates.

I can get old IBM 7025-F50 box.
Is there any chance to put any recent kernel on to it?
I saw only reports to install debian 3.0 / sarge
Are there any hidden problems?
Looking up the specs, I don't see any obvious reason it shouldn't work
even with a current release. It is a CHRP powerpc machine with open
firmware. Perfectly normal it seems.
I would give it a try if you have one.
Obviously at 332MHz 604e it won't be fast. Also depends whether it has
128MB ram, or has been expanded to a more resonable amount. Obviously
having more than 1 cpu would be nice.
