Sparc tests fine under the following conditions: 1. ebuild taken from cvs at 13:06 (GMT) 2. USE flags thus: =========================== lacewing root # PKGDIR=${PD} emerge -pkv xorg-x11 These are the packages that I would merge, in order: Calculating dependencies ...done! [binary R ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 (-3dfx) (-3dnow) +bitmap-fonts - -cjk -debug +dlloader -dmx -doc -font-server +hardened +insecure-drivers - -ipv6 -minimal (-mmx) +nls +opengl +pam -sdk (-sse) -static +truetype-fonts +type1-fonts (-uclibc) -xprint +xv [1] =========================== 3. Because of the +dlloader, necessarily the patches from Bug 61063 were applied. 4. This version of X is hardened. 5. The (deprecated) keyboard driver is still required. kbd shifts keys as it always has. 6. NOTE: The two 'is_kernel' tests produce error messages, but (for me, at any rate) ebuild operation is correct anyway. I have not investigated further, but as I recall, the messages were: [: wrong number of arguments (for the check kernel-2.2.x) Command '*' not understood Given this, sparc is fine. --- 7. For non-(hardened+dlloader) users (everyone but me, I think), extra patching should not be needed, although at some point, the 61063 patches are required.
