Re: Sun Blade 1000

Hi Tom
Does it have the FibreChannel disk controller? That is what my sunblade 2000 has ( manufactured in 2002).

My experience with that ( two years ago) is that the driver has a bug preventing installation. I discussed this a few years ago.

At the time, I was able to install OpenBsd, but that's not what I want.
Good luck

The current ports page does not indicate specific support for the Blade
1000. Is this likely to work on this fairly old, but very well built
and still serviceable equipment?

Are there known issues of which I ought to be aware before attempting

Thanks in advance,
