I would like your potato sparc cd set and IPX. If you are giving it away,
please give it to me.
Also, I still run debian linux on sparcs. I've been doing it for some time
now. They aint the fastest,
but they are quite stable.

I'm pretty sure we did so in my old job (as a grad student I did linux and
solaris admin at UC Berkeley). I can't remember for sure if there were
2's, but we certainly had IPC's, IPXes, Sparc 1, Sparc 1+, and Sparc 5
running linux (redhat, don't remember the version). If you're interested
I can give you my then-boss's e-mail address -- he could tell you for
I'll reiterate: I have some old sparc-linux related junk available to
anyone who wants it. The computer you'll have to come pick up, but i can
mail the cd's if anyone wants them:
- Sun Sparc IPX, with a probably-useable debian potato (2.2) installation
on it. Needs a new clock chip (aprox $40) or just to be left on all the
time. Includes keyboard, mouse, and adapter to plug a standard *VGA
monitor into its color framebuffer.
- Debian 2.2r2 (potato) for sparc CD set
Just let me know.
