I'm new to this list. I searched the archives but couldn't find an answer,
so I'm throwing this out to y'all.
Does gentoo now, or are there plans to make this, install and run on a DEC
AlphaServer 2100A? I've been told this is an EV5 architecture, but since
I'm not an expert this could be wrong.
I snagged two of these machines and I'd like to get a *nix distro running.
If the bottleneck is lack of a machine I am quite willing to do the
testing, but I can't get the alpha port to boot up at all, so experts
elsewhere are needed.
If this isn't a likely development, does anyone know of an alternative? I
have yet to find one that claims this as a supported architecture. I've
looked at FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, RedHat, etc.
I know HP offers RedHat 7.2-alpha but i'm having a problem. HP has a
'wrapper' CD that will boot the machine, but when I stick in the RH-alpha
install CD (also downloaded from HP) it won't recognize it.
Any suggestions appreciated.
