My Hardware

These are my machines; well, most of them... The namespace I chose are the characters from Terry Pratchett's famous "Discworld" novels.

gaspode | vimes | nobby | carrot | detritus | slippy
Io Io, the router

1 x NSC Geode 266MHz
Voyage Linux (based on Debian Sarge)

Gaspode Gaspode, the workstation

VIA Eden (Samuel 2) 600MHz
512 MiB RAM (DDR PC266), including 32 MiB for onboard graphics
Debian GNU/Linux testing (Etch)

Including a TV tuner card, a DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive, (important!) a MPEG2-Decoder onboard (VIA CLE266 chipset) and some speakers (a cheap 2.1 system) attached, this is my "multimedia center". Additionally it acts as the internet gateway. Sadly, as a result (and because it's new and cheap hardware) it's not very stable.

this machine is dead at the moment
Vimes Vimes, the server and gaming machine

2 x Intel Pentium III (Coppermine) 1000 MHz
1536 MiB RAM (DDR PC266)
Debian GNU/Linux testing (Etch)

Nobby Nobby, the testing system

2 x Intel Pentium 120 MHz
128 MiB RAM (PS/2 EDO 60ns)
EISA bus
Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 (Sarge) and M$ DOS 6.22

Carrot Carrot, the little different workstation

SGI Indy
1 x NEC R4600PC 133 MHz
256 MiB RAM (PS/2 FPM 60ns Parity)
Debian GNU/Linux (mips) 3.1 (Sarge) and IRIX 6.5.x

It's the lower Indy. The upper one is an item on loan: named "mort", NEC R4000PC 100 MHz, 64 MiB RAM running NetBSD/sgimips 2.0 using NFS and DHCP/bootp on gaspode

Detritus Detritus, the big iron

Hewlett-Packard HP/9000 720
1 x PA-7000 50 MHz
160 MiB RAM (HP custom)
Debian GNU/Linux (hppa) 3.1 (Sarge) and HP/UX 9.0.x

Nobby Slippy, should get another name...

Compaq Contura Aero 4/25
1 x Intel 486SX 25 MHz
