Previous to Hardy. Older versions have been moved to ports.ubuntu.com:
PowerPC and SPARC moved to ports.ubuntu.com
The PowerPC and SPARC architectures no longer receive commercial
support from Canonical for new releases of Ubuntu (PowerPC as of 7.04,
SPARC as of 8.04), and accordingly these architectures have been moved
to ports.ubuntu.com. Users of these architectures should take care to
update /etc/apt/sources.list. Old sources.list entries looked like this
(perhaps using <country>.archive.ubuntu.com rather than archive.ubuntu.com):
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy-security main restricted
while new entries should look like this:
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports hardy main restricted
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports hardy-security main restricted
SPARC server install CD
For Sun UltraSPARC computers, including those based on the multicore
UltraSPARC T1 ("Niagara") processors.
