I'm certainly jealous. My E4500 will only run a couple of days before it hangs requiring a reboot. Sometimes it will still respond to pings but that's all. Never any console messages, just a hung box. On my uniprocessor sparc's (U5 and U30) is is very stable but not on the E4500 with 8 CPU's. It is running Gentoo with a 2.4 kernel (2.4.31 at the moment). Philip -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
