Hi All,

I have been trying this for a couple of days now and have searched
google and not found any answers.

I am trying to build a 64-bit OS from a Jumpstart server. The machine
is a Sparc 20 with 128MB RAM.

I want the entire distribution to go on there so I have used the
entire-distribution.profile example that came out of the Jass package. I
have tried adding the 64-bit packages but I get an error saying
"WARNING: SUNWesxu is already included in the SUNWCall package", I get
this for every 64-bit package I try to add.

I'm guessing that I am missing something obvious here. Can anyone shed
any light on how to install the OS as 64-bit from Jumpstart, Do the
Sparc 20's support 64-bit?
