Well, if it is just lamp, ldap etc etc, it just works out of the box.
I can't tell iv any flavour of virtualisation will work, as my machine
just have 512MB mem in them.
In case you have something that creates lots of hw-interrupts, you are
probably far better off with sparc archticture:
Due to backwards compatibility intel based PC's still have to be
compatible with the very old IBM-PC design.
If it is just sip/iax you want, why not? I presume you don't want to
stream & convert a couple of hundreds hifi connections...
Even for that, there are some debates wether intel or amd is better ;-)
otoh, with those new intel-boxes, one can take advantage of the latest
cpu-enhancements (AES-intructions), nice for encryption (vpn/disk)
and you can use high-res video boards.
Not sure if that answered my question. I'm not going to be running LAMP, LDAP, Virtualization or would have any H/W Interrupts as far as I can tell. It's purely software based call-control/switching with ODBC connection to an external DB. Purely SIP traffic in and out. Expecting a couple of 100 concurrent calls with no compression or codec translation (ideally). I also don't need VPN or Disk encryption, nor would any of those machines need a video card or even a video chip :)The question was mostly, if someone is running the same scenario as I'm planning on as described above on a x86/x86_64 platform with Fedora 15, then would I be able to run it just as stable on SPARC port, all things being equal and ignoring the speed of updates available for the sparc port.At the risk of sounding like a total tool, could I ask if someone can point me to the documentation related to installing/configuring Fedora on Sparc? I have spent 15-20 mins finding it but haven't found anything specific.Also, which version should I be trying? In the download section on fedora website, I see that even the netboot iso for v15 are available for sparc64. is that safe to try or should I be using v14?Thanks so much
