Hi Dan,

until now nobody fixed this.
This changes with my release that I'm working on night and day.

That's what I meant when I said to list: "will be released in August".
I had LiveCD images in the past (was the first and only one to offer a
SPARC-distro for a long time, this didn't change with the exception of
one MilaX release (without X11), but that was before Xsun went
2 years I stopped working on it, and many folks said, they would do
it, but they all gave up early.

I have Xsun working here.
And I my Blade 2000 Dual 1.2GHz is heavily loaded compiling 5
different OI workspaces at once.

Please some patience.
You are  going to hear from me on list, and personally with
assistance, if you want.
I cannot predict the exact release day, but I'm making good progress
in getting the consolidations built.
Then I need a few additional days to customize the textinstaller.

So stay tuned  .......
