But on a fortunate note, some of us have been pitching in some time on
fixing things here and there.  The 2.4.19 kernel is a major improvement
for sparc32 over the previous releases.  If you've been wanting to try a
2.4.x on sparc32, then plain ol' vanilla 2.4.19 (or later) is the way to
go right now.

Other than a swapon segfault bug on smp sun4m machines (where swapon
still seems to work), it should be somewhat decent and in need of more
long-term testing.

BTW, if you folks haven't seen it yet, take a spin around
http://www.sparclinux.net/ ... especially look around the FAQ... and
please excuse the DNS problems while we fight with NSI.
