Hi,
I have finally managed to persuade by boss to go the linux way for our servers. Now the question is that can we get rid of Tru64 OS and install gentoo on it?
The machine details are:
___________________________________________________________
# uname -a
OSF1 alpha1.xxxx.xxx V5.1 1885 alpha

# head -10 /var/adm/messages

Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: Alpha boot: available memory from 0x6166000 to 0xfffee000
Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: Compaq Tru64 UNIX V5.1A (Rev. 1885); Wed Aug 1 15:13:05 EDT 2001
Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: physical memory = 4096.00 megabytes.
Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: available memory = 3998.52 megabytes.
Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: using 15654 buffers containing 122.29 megabytes of memory

Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: Starting secondary cpu 3
Dec 16 06:04:54 factory vmunix: Firmware revision: 6.1-3
_________________________________________________________

Is it possible to install gentoo on this machine. Can gentoo support the 64bit architecture on these machines?

Thanks for any info.
