And there has been a fair bit of work done on Sparc for c6. [snip good info] Hmm, is this ia64 build available publicly? The last I saw was fairly old. But it's been a month or more since I looked last. We've just acquired a second box (which is more than one machine) to augment the one SGI Altix 3000 we have; this one is a melange of a small Altix 3000 and a stack of Altix 350's in one tall cabinet; at least part of that one will be operational fairly soon. > > So having somewhat of a really high-level overview of handling of secondary arches would be useful, to more than just me I'm sure. > > cool, let me get something together.
