Okay; thanks for the info. I reckon I'll havta put a piece of tape over
the STOP button or something ;-) (Actually, this seems like a pretty
major thing, but I'm not a developer, so can't complain.)
If from anywhere, I press Stop-A, the machine hangs. If' I'm at a VT, I
see the message "Type 'go' to resume ok", but "go" doesn't do
anything; the machine's totally hung. This happens even if I shut down
Hanging with Stop-A is only because sparc64-linux doesn't relinquish the
USB keyboard back to the PROM correctly. I think I remember Dave saying
this was a problem that wouldn't be fixed anytime soon, if at all.
I've tried changinr video depths from 24 to 16 (same behaviour), and
tried changing the video driver from ati to fbdev (which locks the
machine when X starts).
The Alt+F8 thing seems weird.
Bummer; I had a whole university-level Computer Science department of
kids just waiting to be impressed with Debian over Solaris. Yikes!
Thanks for the response! I appreciate it!
