I'm thinking about buying SuSE Linux 7.1 for Sparc, but its price (EUR
159, is
extremely high compared to other editions (EUR 50 for Alpha or
PowerPC, Is the price
really so high?

Is there a list of known problems for Linux on the Sparc platform?
(Mainly concerning the integration of the Linux box into an existing
Solaris 8 environment with NFS shared home directories, NIS,
automounter, ...). I've just downloaded and installed the FTP
version. In general, it works, but I haven't done any tests yet.
