At this point, I'm left with the mouseconfig failure (I need to debug kudzu to find out whats wrong with it), the KDE audio failure (not showstopping for a beta), and KDE being slower than Debian Stable's release cycle.
Video works for my ss20 (GX), and my Ultra 2 (Creator 3d). Installing without /boot partitions works. Brian Ferris's keyboard "us" bug in text mode is fixed. All the devices are being probed and detected properly. All thats left to test is the merging of sparc32 & sparc64 on a single iso set. And I feel really good about that.
8bit GUI installs are ugly (not Aurora's fault, 8bit is inherently ugly), but they work.
Its good stuff. I'm really pleased.
