I've got an SS5 110Mhz with 160 megs of memory running:
NetBSD rodent 1.6.1_RC1 NetBSD 1.6.1_RC1 (RODENT) #1: Thu Feb 13 21:43:23 MST 2003 rmk@rodent:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/RODENT sparc
I updated the sources with anoncvs a couple of hours before that kernel
So I've done "make build", built and installed mozilla and a bunch of other
stuff. I've been running fvwm with 16 desktops, and mozilla a bit.
Seems pretty solid, although mozilla eats memory like there's no tomorrow.
I haven't done any kernel tuning yet.
