OK, your kernel-image-2.4.21-sparc64 worked just fine. I then went
back to compiling my own kernel with similar configuration to the one
you used for your kernel-image package but it still didn't work.
In an act of desesperation I ran "make mrproper", "make menuconfig"
again (setting the same options I had before) and build my kernel again
("make dep boot modules modules_install"). This time the thing worked.
So, I don't know exactly what was causing problems. Maybe it was
something that "make clean" was not fixing. Whatever it was it's gone,
and 2.4.21 seems to be a pretty good kernel on the Sparc.
Thanks for the help.
