Ubuntu on Niagara

Well, that was fast. Looks like you can actually boot Linux/Ubuntu on Niagara!
Thanks to extraordinary efforts from David Miller, the Ubuntu SPARC team and the
entire Linux-on-SPARC community, it should now be possible to test out the
complete Ubuntu installer and environment on Niagara machines. As of today, the
unofficial community port of Ubuntu to SPARC should be installable on Niagara,
and we would love to hear reports of success or failure (and love them more if
they come with patches for performance or features :-)).
