Public accessible Debian Machines

Hewlett-Packard (HP) offers public access to several machines running

Debian GNU/Linux through their Test Drive program.  Software authors

and prospective users are offered an account on those machines in

order to find out more about Debian GNU/Linux and a particular HP

hardware.  Four architectures are supported (Alpha, PA-RISC, IA-32 and

IA-64).  Compilers are installed to that software authors can test

whether their software compiles on those platforms.

Hewlett-Packard offers access to the following four architectures:

   Intel (IA-32)   ProLiant DL360 G2 1.4GHz  SMP

   Intel (IA-64)   rx2600 Itanium II         SMP

   Alpha (alpha)   XP1000a 1@667MHz           UP

   Alpha (alpha)   DS20 2@500MHz              UP

   PA-RISC (hppa)  rp5470 1@550MHz            UP

The Test Drive Program is a free service of HP.  Its main purpose is

to provide developers with access to new HP hardware running various

HP and third party operating systems and applications.  When you

register, you get a free shell account you can use to log into the

wide variety of systems on our Test Drive network and try out the

software and operating systems running on them.

Test Drive gives you the opportunity to try out combinations of

hardware, operating systems, and software before you buy them.  For

developers, it also gives you the opportunity to ensure your software

runs on hardware, software, and operating system combinations which

you may not have available to you locally.

Its not very often you get a free shell account
