I'm Davide Barbieri <email@example.com>, or
<firstname.lastname@example.org> (the last one seems to have mail problems).
I had the account on master.debian.org for debian sparc porting.
I had written a little document in sgml, about the status
of debian sparc porting, and I have posted it some times ago
on this list.
I have also build some debian packages for sparc,
and have put them on my sparc/linux machine: test.dei.unipd.it.
These packages are available via anonymous ftp on the same machine.
Sorry, but I wasn't able to put them on master (slow connection).
These packages were simply recompiled on sparc/linux using
the sources available from debian.
I have build a libc5-5.2.13.deb for sparc/linux but haven't
test yet. I'm working also on boot-floppies and SILO packages
for Debian Sparc. I'm also studying a gcc-2.7.2 package.
This is the result of dpkg -l on my machine:
