I actually just eysterday nailed 'a incosistency on CentOS-4 patched
kernel against the not so patched sparc64 land', so now i do have
paging/swapping working aOK. I've actually never before been so happy
seeing machine quickly eating some 1GB of swap :)

I started my leave as of today (Tuesday) and now it's one of my top
pririties to start working on packaging a installable version of that
(the kernel fixing was one of the problems too).

When the CentOS-4.2 final set of sources are available, that will be
the freezing point for sparc64.

There is no release date, but a little patience will do it.
