This question has been asked before, but I never recognised an answer.

What about running GRASS (4.0 & 4.1) on the new SPARC Classic, has any-
body incountered any problems. We intend to add a SPARC Classic to our
local SUN SPARC network, consisting of one SPARC 1+ one SPARC IPC and
two SPARC SS10 working as file servers. 
As far as I know, the Classic requires SUN-OS 4.2.1 to be run.
So it will have its own operating system running, but all user data and
application programms will reside on the server.
So the questions are:
Will GRASS compiled on the SPARC IPC under SUN-OS 4.1.1 run on the Classic?
Is the Classic powerfull enough to run GRASS and OPENWIN, especially regarding
   the graphics card (8bit color).

   Hoping somebody has tried this
