No they don't.  They pay Linux lip service.  Supported Linux software comes
with source.  Period.  No exceptions.  Anything else is just hot air.

Hell, I can't even install RealPlayer on some of my x86 boxes.  "What, you
want sound *without* X?  What are you thinking?  Real has decided that
all users are better off using X."  I want as little to do with that
monstrosity as possible.  Closed source is bad enough, closed network
protocols are far worse.  Don't get me started....

Silly me.  I'm new to this sparc thing.  I thought, devel kernels would at
least *compile*, even if they wouldn't work.  Especially those that list
"Sparc64 updates" in the changelog...

Well, I was hopefull....

Into asm-sparc64, but, otherwise, yes.

Ok, then.  I'll see if I can get to the root of the problem.  Prolly later
this weekend.
