Re: Custom tftpboot images
So XFS is not an option for sparc based systems.
How about ReiserFS and JFS?

Good news: The sparc Debian installer works fine with a XFS root file
system, the sunhme.c patch included in 2.4.19 works too.
Bas news: XFS is absolutely unusable with a sparc system, it does not
survive to a hard power off, the kernel stops at "Starting XFS recovery
on filesystem" and seats there forever.
Conclusion: Use ext3, Luke.
