I've seen an installation of about 30 SunRays before and I seem to
remember thinking that they needed specialised software from Sun running
under Solaris in order to work. They are *really* thin clients that
really only consist of a monitor, mouse and keyboard and rely on their
host server for everything else. That's not an architecture that you're
going to get FreeBSD to run under I wouldn't think.
I'd like to be proved wrong however. Perhaps the rays just provide an X
Server or somesuch and you could persuade them to display the output of
XFree86 under FreeBSD?
I don't know enough detail to say for sure - do some investigating then
come back and tell us all!
Also, you might want to ask on the sparc64 at freebsd.org list, where more
experienced Sun people hang out I'm sure.
