Right now, I'm not quite sure whether I used USAGI on both systems. 
The Sparc10 had USAGI, and I thought I had compiled the kernel for
the Ultra1 without USAGI. So this might actually be an USAGI-problem.
I constantly try to recompile kernels (with and whithout this and
that), but see below.

I'll try whatever I can. ;) Right now, all my self-built kernels 
cannot boot with a "Data Access Exception", I suspect its a 
compiler-problem. Which one should I use? It's a Sid. I tried 3.2.3-2
3.3-0pre8 (I'll try pre9 today) and 2.95 which wouldn't even compile.
Right now my /usr/bin looks like this:

/usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-2.95
/usr/bin/gccbug -> gccbug-3.2
/usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc -> gcc-2.95

I'm not quite sure whether /usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc -> gcc-2.95 makes
sense. Should I install egcs64? egcs64 seemed to produce bootable 
kernels, but had problems compiling 2.5.6x (which I ultimatively want).
