I just got my server up and running, Specs are in my signature.

I just wanted to add the hard drive I got working:
2x18gb Seagate ultra 160 SCSI Raid(1 - Mirror)
4x36gb Seagate ultra 160 SCSI Raid(5 - Parity across)
4x250GB IBM/Hitachi ATA 133 IDE

I love this server, its very stable and is easy to work with. Too bad it weighs a ton!

Seems a lot of people really love their Ultra 2's. I was lucky enough to pick one up for $20CDN on eBay. It didn't come with a hard drive and listed the RAM as 64MB, which made me a bit suspicious since I thought the minimum configuration was 128MB - and lucky for me it was just a matter of a stick of RAM not being seated properly.

[eddie]
Sun Ultra Enterprise 2
1 processor running at 200MHz
128MB RAM
2 x 9.1GB 10,000 RPM SCSI drives

[sam]
Sun Sparcstation 5
110MHz processor
2.1GB SCSI drive
added hme card for 100MB/s NIC

I just pulled the second 9.1GB drive from the Sparc. The Ultra is 3 days old (since the SPUD brackets came in for the drives), but I was using the Sparc to SSH into from work and run some command-line tools. I have to use Windows at work, but I'm optimistic that will change real soon!

My pc is just a little louder then my playstation2. How loud is an Ultra 80? That power supply and the giant fans by the processors look like they could really put out some noise!


I'm not sure about the Ultra 80, but my Ultra 2 is pretty loud. The problem for me is not the fan, but the 10,000 RPM hard drive which was an even louder SLOB in the thinner Sparc 5.

I got myself an Ultra 10 over Christmas, 440 mhz, 512 mb ram, ATI framebuffer. Presently it has a 20 gig disk in it. I've been plesantly surprised that with X, xfce, gaim, conky, firefox, a handful of xterms, and a build going that it regularly runs at half or less ram usage and hasn't touched swap. I was told that X would be a bad idea on it but clearly that person didn't know what they were talking about as it runs perfectly fine for me. When I have some spare cash to throw at it I'm thinking of maxing out the ram with another 512 and getting some larger disks. Does anyone offhand know how large of a drive the Ultra 10s can hold? I've got the latest bootprom which I believe is 3.31.

I have a E4500 6 processor 2Gig machine. (I have knocked it down to 4 cpu's to save power. (It can heat the room in 1/2 hour))

I know sound in the older sparc archetecture is accessed off of the sbus, but does anyone know if there was ever actually a "sbus sound card"

will this work as a sound card ? EBAY: 5858925421
How about sbus to pcmcia bridge and a pcmcia sound card ? :-)

I have 2.6.15 working on two V210s (UP only, SMP hangs), and on a Blade 100. I'll try and get an X1 running one of these days, shouldn't be too hard.

As soon as I can make room for it I will be running a U60. The hard part is I got the Sun 21" monitor with the thing and they are HUGE!

Ultra 60 Elite 3D
2x 450MHz UltraSPARC II
2x 18GB 10krpm Cheetah
2GB RAM


Ultra 2 Enterprise
2x 143MHz UltraSPARC I
4.5GB 7200RPM
128MB RAM


I have 2.6.15 up and running on the Ultra 60. Haven't mucked about with the Ultra 2 just yet; I want to get some more RAM for it before installing. A couple of 300mhz USparcII's for it would be nice too ;-)

Hi all, from Montreal (Dorval)

Sparc & gentoo noob here, specs below.
From a stage 3 tarball it took about a week (on & off) to install, compile & configure X & Kde to load properly.
Thanks to gentoo devs & this forum.

To do list;
1. tweak this install & try to improve kde or ditch it for something lighter
2. find a quieter HD, the whining from these dinosaurs is too much

edit:
Done list;
1. making some progress, cut 40 secs from boot time - down to slightly more than a minute
2. replaced old 4.1 disks with a new & quiet 9g IBM

To do list;
1. now that I can hear the fans I should replace them with something quieter
2. try and get sound to work

Hi everybody

I got my ultrasparc10 from my boss. on the beggining when i was sticked to X11 it was too slow as a uptodate workstation, because the earlier ones are limited with ide, the chipset seems to not to support dma...
But now it is pretty cool and stable for remote work. it is very reliable.
I use:

apache/php vhost
mysql
qmail
icecast & ices

the load is just-just fits to this sunny machine, cheers

I just got an Ultra 2 off of ebay:

elevator.music:
2x 300MHz
512MB
9GB Seagate

Just running headless on the floor right now until I get the quad-ethernet sbus card and replace my x86 athlon machine acting as the home router. Possibly move mysql and apache2 over to it and make the x86 solely for mythtv...

I got a few new machines:

pulsar (primary workstation)
Sun Ultra 2, 2x 400MHz, 2048MB RAM, 2x 9.1 GB HD, Creator 3d Series 3

bewater (test machine)
Sun IPX, 40 MHz, 64MB RAM, 1x 4.3 GB HD

myfriend (another test machine)
Sun IPX, 40 MHz, 64MB RAM, 1x 4.3 GB HD

I also have two unnamed boxes. One is another Ultra 2 with 2x 300MHz/512MB RAM and the other is a Sun AXi with 440MHz and 512MB RAM. The latter one will go into a 3U Case and act as a file server soon.

Hey Gang,

I have had this box for a while and am finally working my way through the install. It is a Netra t1 105 with a 9 GB scsi HDD and a cd-rom named Chtorr. Does anyone have experience with installing quad cards in these boxes?

Ultra 80 4x450MHz, 2560MB RAM, 2x18GB 10k (sw raid1) + 1x18gb 10k external, 2xCreator3d (dual head xinerama on 21" displays @1600x1280x76), copper gigE (e1000) in the 64bit/66mhz slot, pci usb2 card, pci es1371 sound card (better than the onboard). Running the gcc-4.1 profile. I've had it for almost a year and it has run great the whole time. Cooks right along while compiling, but running web browsers and such remotely from the other gigabit-connected 2xXeon5160 boxes is far preferable to running them locally ;-)

It isn't even very loud, I can't hear it at all (including the disks) over the A/C unit in the next room over.
