If Debian Installer could support 2.6 based installations for sparc32,
that would be an important step towards not having to drop it for Etch.
One thing that would definitely need to be worked on for longer term
viability is sysfs support in sbus device drivers.
I've also seen various references to doing an i386-linux-uclibc port of
debian for the lower memory/speed benefits it provides. 2 Questions: 1)
where's this being talked about if anyone knows as I have old PC's that
could use the extra life as well, and 2) has anyone looked into it for
Sparc32? I know that uClibc currently doesn't have a dynamic linker for
the Sparc32 (unless I'm out of date there) but would it be worthwhile in
Huzzah! I've come out of my depression long enough to write some emails!
