Is there anything akin to memtest86+ for SPARCs? I did a little poking
around and I saw some indications that some of the Linux people have
developed something like that for Linux; anyone know of anything
similar either standalone or NetBSD?
I've picked up the memtest86+ source tarball (1.65) and will be looking
at building something that does similar tests on SPARCs....
