SunFire V480 and Linux

I’ve been working on a SunFire V480 system with Solaris 8 on it for some time now trying to upgrade it (and hopefully migrate it to debian).

After setting up a test machine, migrating all the applications as well as ldap, I disovered that Sun has not yet opened up the hardware enough to allow developers to have this machine work on any Linux or BSD system.

Looks like I’ll be using OpenSolaris on this machine, and never buying Sun again. 🙂
