I'm wondering if anyone in here has experience with running linux on the ultraSparc system? If so, how did it go?
I've run Debian on a number of both Sparc 4m and Sparc 4u systems w/out any real trouble. the most "recent" spac I ran Debian on, however, was my old Ultra 10. So, I can't say with certainty that you will not have trouble on a Sun Blade, but I would imagine that things have only progressed, not regressed.
I did also try the Aurora project (red hat for sparc) MANY years ago, but had settled on Debian. Actually, it was my experience w/ Debian on Sparc and VAX that made me go to Debian on x86.
