Introduction to SPARC configurations
The userspace installation for SPARC systems is often comprised of ILP32 rather than LP64 binaries, because they do run somewhat faster. (Compare with http://www.osnews.com/story/5768 ; A similar trend has only recently entered the x86 world as the "x32" mode.)
Instance is private, because OBS does not properly permit setting public/private on a per-project basis.
- an installer image is currently absent (sort of the last piece in the puzzle)
- zypper does not pick the intuitively-correct architecture at this point
