Here's my Sparc hardware collection thus far:

Sparc Ultra 5
360 Mhz Sparc IIi CPU
512 Megs of RAM
80 gig IDE HD
DVD+-RW
Sun PCI Chimera card

Currently running Solaris 10 as I'm trying to get the SunPCI card working

recently I picked up a:

Sun Fire v120
650 Mhz Sparc IIe CPU
No ram
CD-ROM
36 gig SCSI HD

aAd I just bought 2 gigs of ECC memory tonight for the v120. Gonna get another 2 gigs and then probably larger hard drives then slap Gentoo on it. I've gotta find another place to put it though because the fans are DAMN loud :lol:

Purpose: Router/Firewall

Hostname: heracles.fast.ayerie.org
Machine: Sun Ultra 80

I have a rather minimal Sun Utlra 5 Workstation too.
It got 256 MB ECC RAM and a 10GB HD.

Runs Gentoo for some time now, using the bew baselayout + openrc, shorewall and a few other things.
Did not have any problems at all.

I got hold of an E4500 recently.
8x UltraSPARC II 400MHz, 12GB RAM, SBUS I/O

First ever SMP machine for me, and when it gets going it's very impressive!
Single CPU jobs are alright too.
Next project is getting gnat on it for Ada..

I have an ultra V with 512MB of RAM and a 20GB hd.

I am installing gentoo on it right now and at the end of the week-end, it should become my router/firewall.

I own two SPARCS:

SS10 w/ 9GB SCSI HDD + quad-port Eth controller running oBSD
Ultra10 w/ 4GB HDD running Kubuntu

My plan is to turn the Ultra 10 into a MythTV system using Gentoo. Testing it right now with various video cards to get TV output.
