Works great on my Ultra 5 (333 MHz, 2MB Cache, 512MB RAM, 20GB 5400RPM disk, PGX32 graphics).
Take care though to install the 64 bit libraries (strangely the installer doesn’t do it be default) and the Sun Media libraries.
Kudos to Sun. 🙂
It’s /very/ slow on my Ultra 5, but I’ve only got a 270MHz/256KB cpu. I’ve got a 333 on order though, so I’ll look forward to a dramatic speed increase.
The speed increase will be dramatic indeed. Mine Ultra5 was 270MHz/256KB, too, but now with the 333/2MB it’s even fastet than the 360MHz/512KB
I’m scared and lonely.
Why are you “scared and lonely”, Henry?

I can’t believe Sun did this! The R.O.A.D method of competition (Rolled Over And Died) was working so well for them!
