The blade has now been running 5 days without a hitch so I am thinking that I have finally gotten a stable JS12. The i partition has been running successfully and I just installed SLES 11 last night. I am still working through some issues with *that*: It appears to have some issues with graphics so I haven’t been able to start VNC successfully yet. But, by and large, the blade appears to be rockin and rollin now.
I want to play a bot more now. I need to get back to my JRuby projects and get a JRuby application running on this Power 6 box and, with the Linux partition available, I’d like to try a PPC64 compile of Asterisk. If I can consolidate more servers, I’d be able to justify having this big space heater in my basement.
More to come. Stay tuned!
