Starting to sort through the pile of SPARCs I got yesterday. The U1
seems to be dead; I get a "red something" error on a terminal on the
serial port. List archives seem to indicate that it means a dead CPU.
The CPU seems to be pretty well attached to the MB...
The 20 had a "stray interrupt" error when booting from the CD. Made me
think the CD was bad, but it wasn't. I removed a couple of cards and it
works fine. First, I took out what I think is an FC-AL card. It's got an
Emulex 2400092 FAS101 chip on it. Anyone want it for COS??
The 20 now has 128M, 4G, 2x85MHz in it. Anyone suggest a faster OS than
Sorry, Josh, but I'm probably going to use the SunSwift cards. All my
SPARCs (9 or so of them) are SBUS, too.
More later as I dig through the parts. Suggestions for appropriate
applications for a 5 and a 2? I'm thinking that I might use them to get
a couple more friends interested in SPARCs...
