I'm running the 2.2.0 +CVS, uptime only one day. I've uploaded the
kernel patch package for sparc to 2.2.0 to go along with Jonnie Ingrams's
(netgod) 2.2.0 source upload. We would just need an image uploaded next.
I strongly suggest waiting for 2.2.1 for a release candidate as long as
bcwhite will acknowledge we _need_ this kernel in the sparc release.
I've had very bad luck with 2.0.x kernels, especially on sun4c's.

I've got slink running on an IPC with 50 days uptime (as of today :)
using the 2.1.131 kernel. It's only acting as an ircd so I haven't been
doing any harcore testing. My LX with the 2.2.0 kernel (been using
2.1.130 and 2.1.131 as well) has been doing well running apache,
wu-ftpd, cvs, openldap and dqueued as well as doing weekly tape
backups. This is about the closest I have to a full production server,
and I am very pleased with it's performance and stability.
