Sun loans Ultra30 Systems to Debian

November 6th, 1998

Sun Microsystems has loaned three UltraSPARC systems to Debian project. They are 64-bit Ultra30 workstations, each with an UltraSPARC-II/250MHz CPU (1M-ECache), 128MB RAM, 4.3GB Seagate SCSI drive and a Creator graphics card. One system is installed at Kachina Technologies, Inc. and will be publicly available to Debian developers. The other two systems are used by developers to develop boot related packages and other low level tools.

There is a port specific web page that contains information on the work in progress. People interested in helping with the Debian UltraLinux effort should check there for the current port status.
