I'd like to try installing Fedora on a Sunfire v210 (SPARC) server. I don't
seem to have luck finding the ISO for SPARC, although I did find the mailing
list. :-) The Fedora Download page doesn't appear to have a SPARC option.
Is there a different location to download the ISO from?
I got information from LVM developers that versions between 2.02.74 and
83 (including) have broken computation of CRC on big endian
architectures and must not be installed (or upgraded to from an earlier
version) otherwise severe damage will happen. 2.02.84 is OK again.
I have Fedora 12 running on my Sunblade 2500 with XVR-100 (Radeon chipset) graphics card. It's working pretty well except a couple of things.
1. When the server boots, the screen is garbled, and you can't read anything, until it starts the Xserver, and then everything is fine. It's also garbled when removing "rhgb" from the append line in silo.conf. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice to see the startup status.
2. When I run any X11 app (like xterm), it gets lines all over the display and you can't see any text in the windows. I export the DISPLAY, and use "ssh -X" when calling the app. Any app running locally, displays fine.
Thanks for any help.

Hello list, dear fedorians,
a few days ago I got a Sun Blade 100. After debugging a miss-jumpered
hard drive I was able to install Solaris 10.
Net-Booting Fedora from
(tried different .img-files)
results in boot, freezing with the message:
console handover: boot [earlyprom0] real tty0
Which .img-file is correct for net-booting?
I've even tried different versions of deibans net installer.
Do you have any suggestions, what to check, how to debug?
