Well not yet, but we'd be delighted to hear of your experience
with them. LVS works fine on Linux (DEC) Alpha (or it did
about a year ago, we haven't heard any more from these people).

The LVS code is _supposed_ to be platform independant, but it
would be nice if someone could check it :-) 

I understand that the Sparc port of Linux isn't in great shape
(at least according to scuttlebutt I heard on slashdot recently)
and one of the distributions has dropped it. Any problems you
have may be due to the Sparc Linux kernel. I would suggest 
you try with an Intel director first and then try the
Sparc with a 2.2.x kernel (since there may be problems 
lurking in the newer 2.4 kernels)
