Looking for a distro.


I have an old SPARCStation 10. I'm looking for a distro to toss on it so I can use it as a DNS server.

I've tried both OpenBSD and NetBSD...one throws an exception, the other locks up soon after booting into the OS. From the looking that I've done, the ones that support the SPARC platform only support SPARC64. Are there any that I can put on that old Sun machine?

Debian and Gentoo both support a lot of arch, officially or not.

I looked at them, but I can only get SPARC64 from them.
