Picked up a couple JS20 blades the other day, then found that I only had AIX 5.1 (and 5.2 was the first version to support JS20).
So I'm in search of a modern-ish Linux to run on them since, unlike with old IRIX versions, old Linux versions are pretty boring! Most of the links I've found so far are either broken or so dated that they hardly seem worth investigating -- lots of references to RHEL4, SuSE 8/9, etc.
One thing I'm not sure about is what are the practical differences between PowerPC 970 and G5 (if any), esp. in terms of distro hardware support? Should I be looking for some type of kernel in particular?
A lot of broken links on:http://www.readmespot.com/question/f/96 ... rpc-blade-
I'm downloading the Ubuntu 10.04 CD now from:http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/lucid/release/
And Arch Linux PPC looks promising:http://www.archlinuxppc.org/
Any thoughts / advice?
