I /think/ you can get it up to 96MB using 70ns FPM PS/2 SIMMs with
parity ( 33bit or 36bit parity doesn't matter - if you use 36bit it
only uses 33 anyway )
I know that it's old... but I love this box and it stay with me
from several years.
Oh, we understand that ;)
Performance, it is a problem... I use it as samba, nfs, DHCP, DNS
server... and sometime I use PostgreSQL as db for my cd/lp
collection. All work file but if I use and old NetBSD release...
can it be faster then 3.1 ?
Good question, you might want non-broken threading support though and
then -current is the way to go.
No X at the moment...
Build a wscons kernel and XFree86 should Just Work. Xsun should work
out of the box. Neither will be very fast since the classic's onboard
cg3 doesn't have a blitter.
So... for an old SPARCclassic what it fasert NetBSD relase?
Depends what features you want or need.
