Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I am looking for these Linux distributions for SPARC. I ask you because I wasn't able to find any of them on the Internet, but I know they exist...
SuSE 7.3 for SPARC (suse-sparc-7.3-CD1.iso)
Caldera OpenLinux 2.2 for SPARC (?)
UltraPenguin 1.1 for SPARC (?)

Why do you want SPARC linux distro's? Is it because you have an old sun workstation?

No, I want to try them inside QEMU. Just for fun.

I have tried qemu's sun spark emulator and it's just plain terrible. Qemu is terrible for emulating anything that isn't x86 architecture.

Actually it's the opposite. If you have the correct PROMs and know the options, qemu can emulate a SPARC and other architectures pretty well. It even runs Windows NT on MIPS, for example. But you need to know what you're doing and which switches/parameters you need to use, otherwise you will have the same experience that you had with it ...
