I have and "old" HP B2600 RISC workstation (served as a robotics server).
It was installed with HP-UX 10.20

Now I want to install a free Linux/Unix OS on it....BUT
the only linux distro I can find that supports RISC CPU (hppa) is Gentoo Linux

Anybody that knows other Linux/Unix distros that support hppa??

Older versions of Debian seems to run on it as well. Also OpenBSD it seems.
