    I've compiled one of the stable kernels (which does work) and downloaded
one of the tar files from -current (the ones that aren't current) and note that
this revision of the source tree compiles but doesn't work as well.  This time
I'm getting a freeze right after rc calls newaliases to build the mail alias
database.  This has me convinced that since I _can_ compile a working kernel
there must be something pretty brain damaged with ksrc-current,at least as far
as sun3x arch is concerned.

    BTW: if you've got a working kernel with the new cg4 drivers, could I get a
src tar file, or even a binary?  I just want to see X work on this thing in

Hope this helps!  :-)
