Re: Sparc32 Love?

Actually both Debian Wheezy and Gentoo seems to be stable atleast for me, not that I'm running anything complex on these LDOMs. Only issue a saw with Wheezy was problems with data corruption with ext4. Seems to be fine with ext3.

Really a pitty, as I would really like to continue to run a updated
debian ldom on my T5140 (sorry about offtopic with regards to sparc32).
I guess the problem here wasn't really access to hardware but lack of
manpower to do the porting?

         Don't forget that Sun^WOracle does not provide all required
informations (and errata due to silicon bugs) to have a stable kernel. On
sun4v, only Solaris and maybe OpenBSD run fine. Some efforts are done in
NetBSD to support sun4v, but kernel is not ready. Sparc32, UI and U2 specs
are public but for UIII, only UIII+/Cu and errata are public (not UIII
specs). I never seen any UIV doc. For sun4v, I don't have all required docs
to try to fix actual issues.

I thought sun4v is pretty good covered in the OpenSPARC documentation
(UA2005-current-draft-HP-EXT.pdf and UA2005-current-draft-P-EXT.pdf).
What is missing?

        Errata, and official doc, not draft. There are some strange bugs^Wfeatures that are undocumented.
