Linux on SPARC

OpenBoot 3.1

OK> .version
OK> boot
OK> boot cdrom

press [stop]+[A] (Sun keyboard) to drop into OpenBoot


Using Debian sid netinst cd these days poses no problem on ULtra 10 machines. The Xserver is immediatly available after the first self-sustained boot.


SPARC replacement for lilo. The config is /boot/silo.conf. To force overwriting of first stage bootblock (see man page):

 silo -f

PS: crash course Debian package manager: DebPackager
