Re: Sun Blade 2500


Tobias have posted a question on the debian-sparc mailing list, asking whether he can install Debian on Blade 2500. I was able to find an old thread [0] from May 2005, where Dave mentioned that at that time the machine was not yet supported. It looks like there was at least some progress since then (likely due to Dave's efforts :-), because Tobias is at least able to boot the installer on it. It does not find the disks though, so I wonder what kind of drivers are required for its SCSI controller. Thread [1] mentions message/fusion/mpt* modules, however the original poster never confirmed that he got it working, so it would be nice to hear from someone who is actually running Linux on such a box.
