Subject: Can Etch be installed on an SS20?
I know the Lenny will not support 32-bit Sparc Stations. Has anyone
successfully booted Etch from a CD and done an install?
I know that the Linux kernel does not support multiple CPUs reliably on
sparc32 (and the SS20 can have up to four CPUs; mine has a pair of Ross 180
Because of the lack of SMP support, I put NetBSD on my SS20, but as far as I
know, Etch out to work. I can't tell you that it works from experience,
(To placate the list, I do have Debian running on an UltraSparc 1/170E, but
I am having some issues with 2.6 kernels recognizing the SCSI controller.
It works fine with a 2.4 kernel though.)
