Some (HW) question about a SS20...
I've purchased a SS20 from my organization, and i've some question
+ they have no floppy nor cdrom, so i've installed potato by nfs.
During installation i've noticed many unpacking errors from dpkg, so
i've repeated the step 8/10 time to have the sistem installed.
Also sparc OOPSed, and i've to do a Stop-A.
Installed some package i've recompiled the kernel with no fear... the
sparc seems very stable as i expected.
The nfs server was a PC running 2.4.X kernels (potato+bunk package).
+ the mouse came with no mousepad; i've print the postscript passed
here some month ago, and also i've used a SS10 mousepad but mouse
still scroll only in vertical; someone say me that ss10 and ss20
mousepad are different and not compatible... true?!
+ the monitor (GDM-17E10) seems to be PC-compatible *if* i make some
minor HW modification (see:
) or if i purchase an adaptor.
Someone have done this modification? Someone known where i can buy in
Italy an adaptor or a DB13W3 female connector?
