I have an old Sun Netra X1 server and two SunRays 1 lying around and wondering about installing Linux or Freebsd on them.
- is possible run Linux (and/or FreeBsd with ZFS) on SunRay 1? (I hope Netra X1 is ok)
what performance i can expect? Is the Netra suitable as:
- home fileserver?
some creative ideas how (for what) i can use the SunRays 1 (and Netra X1) today?
- 400Mhz UltraSparcIIe
- 4x DIMM sockets (pc133) - i don't know how much RAM i have now - need boot it, probably it is RAM upgradable
- 2x ETH (10/100)
- 2x USB (probably USB1)
- 2x IDE
RunRay 1 this one: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19116-01/sr1.client/805-7871-12/805-7871-12.pdf - yes, it is the thin client
