[firstname.lastname@example.org] Great job with 2.1, just a few minor questions
I can confirm these bugs. Is there anyone working on them? Should I
submit them as bugs against boot-floppies?

Hey, guys. First off, you seem to have done a great job with the Slink
install: within two hours, we took a 10-year old Sparc1 from formatting
the drives all the way to a base system, X, and ssh (inside of 65MB of
disk space, too). With any luck, another 20-something similar machines
will follow along.
Couple of glitches, though, that might have alrady been addressed:
1) /dev/mouse was not symlinked to /dev/sunmouse when I first tried X.
Does some package that everybody else installs take care of that? As I
didn't even touch dselect, and used apt to get whatever other packages
were needed, I may very well have left out something.
2) /etc/rc.boot/0setserial croaked with "Cannot autoconfigure port:
Invalid argument" -- extremely minor, as those serial ports are not
likely to be used for anything. If this is the same init script as in
the i386 version, perhaps there should be a differnt one for Sparc?
Overwhelmingly, though, Sparc Slink kicks much tail. I hope to have one at
home shortly. Thanks again.
