FreeBSD on a P1022? I'd buy a cheap Zen2 based system first.
BTW - You have some really nice toys!
Thanks! I actually play with these toys on a daily basis, one or the other.
Zen2 based != cheap.
If you want cheap you should look for 2nd hand AMD FX 4x00/6x00 rigs. I got a board+CPU+RAM combo (FX 6300) for just 50 € for a friend.
Surely an improvement over his old Phenom II X4.
BTT - the P1022 really may have a better future on FreeBSD than on Debian:
a.) FreeBSD runs on Big Endian PowerPC
b.) llvm/clang is the system compiler since FreeBSD 10.0
c.) powerpcspe is supported as target arch since llvm/clang 7.0.1
