Auroraconda gets to stage 2! There are still some quirks in stage 1, but man, it was pretty to see it roll into Stage 2 today. Mind you, it didn't get too far, but in the words of Jeremy Katz, "Stage 2 is a lot easier to fix".
Doing a lot of work on the rescuecd code. I know know a lot more about mkisofs on sparc and silo now. For the time being, I'm going to be content to have it boot into a bash shell with all the utilities and kernel modules present.
Kernel is pretty much frozen at 0.96. I know as soon as I say this, it will need fixing in some other area.
Dave Miller confirmed my assumptions about the SunFire 280R, the UltraSPARC III+ CPUs aren't supported by Linux yet.
The loss of my laptop is limiting the amount of work I can do from home. And when I say limiting, I mean, I'm not doing ANY work from home. I already can't wait for its return from Dell. Of course, Tadpole could offer to send me a SPARCbook to fill the void. Yeah. Thats not gonna happen.
