Do you have Sparcs with dead DVRAM that could S10?

Then why not just fix it!

The U10 should run, how much memory does it have and what CPU and graphic adapter do you have?

An Ultra-10 with 512Mb should certainly be enough for running sol10. I would hazard that 256Mb would be feasible.

Before the NVRAM died I tried to install 10, but then I think I got an actual error or warning message basically telling me that it ‘wasn't going to happen.’ Combined with the painfully long time it took to boot from the DVD, with a commodity IDE DVD-ROM drive that I installed (but which didn't seem to work all too well). Then later I think I tried via CDs, or wanted to anyway, which didn't work all too well either for some reason; or actually, I believe it was roughly when the NVRAM died on me. Then I gave up on it — not knowing that in the meanwhile the NVRAM was slowly deteriorating — and went for Debian for SPARC64 instead, which I ultimately abandoned too as it became apparent that the NVRAM was busted and combined with the keyboard/input errors, which pretty much made the whole system rather unusable for me. (Except for perhaps headless use, which I might've tried; that is, if the NVRAM hadn't died as it slowly did).

The whole idea was to install a Solaris (and preferably 10) system and to try out some OpenGL stuff that I heard about, back in the 2000-'03 period. I was particularly interested in how Houdini would work and perform on it. So headless would've been no option either ultimately, but it might've served as a nice server or build machine though.


NVRAM can be repaired by adding a battery piggyback or getting a new ofcourse, reprogramming see below.

Newer ain't always better. Flash 10.x is dung beetle's feast for sub GHz PPC macs.
You need to remove it and install Flash 9 to have a semi working but still choppy experience on some sites like the tube.
The same video using Miro or quicktubeplayer, wich bypass Flash, are smooth as they should be.
Flash just sucks (TM). Of course, if you have GHz to spare you won't notice how bad newer versions are.

I suppose you have singled out the keyboard by trying it on other Sun boxes. Maybe the keyboard plug on your U10's mobo has issues. You could add USB card, install from serial console, and then wait for Xsun to handle your usb keyboard.
