Any chance you have one of the old libc6-v9 or libc6-sparcv9 packages
installed? Try running "ldd /bin/grep" to make sure it is using
Already checked that, and it all looks kosher.
I can only say that Debian has an UltraSPARC60 running 2.4.21-rc2, and
it is running woody. It's a dual processor system (2x450mhz II).
I figured I wasn't the only one. :) Do you have any way of finding out
what version of libc6 and libc6-sparc64 are on that machine? The
versions in "testing" right now are the same as the ones I have

stable or unstable if I can avoid it.
