FreeBSD 6.0 works fine on my U60 SMP workstation. I use Firefox and
Thunderbird without any problem. Also, I use KDE 3.5 and MySQL 4.1.
My package list is attached. The library libthr is used globally.
GDB and CSVup work perfectly.

My system have two hacks, related to following problems:

1. SMP kernel panic: ipi_send: couldn't send ipi
(src/sys/sparc64/include/smp.h v1.17 does not resolve problem,
I bump IPI_RETRIES to high value).

2. firefox and thunderbird is broken on sparc64
(Borrowed from NetBSD patch eliminates a problem).

With Best Regards,
Andrew Belashov.
