Re: Installing debian on a SunBlade 100

I will try to make the "Debian way". I have some (more) questions :

- is the "standard" tree 2.4.5 (or other) good, or must I add some patches ?
- is there the "standard" .config file used to create the official
  kernel-image accessible somewhere ?
- it seem I need the sparc64-linux-gcc. Which package name is it ?

Thanks in advance.
