Hi All,

Starting a thread to ask the user community what they would like to see in a Gentoo/Sparc FAQ. As there is currently one for PPC and x86, I figured we should get up to speed here. Please reply to this thread with things you'd like to see and we'll tally up all the questions and bang one out.

Thanks,

- basic OBP commands for sparc newbies
- installation from console and from serial console
- that /dev/{s,h}{a,b,c,..}3 whole disk thinggy
- make vmlinux instead of bzImage
- get vmlinux under 3.4 MB
- silo is like lilo and not grub (you need to run it after config)
- the whole 64bit 32bit mess
- on some platforms (t1 and x1) the nics are swapped (net0 == eth1 and net1 == eth0)
