I found a package of kernel-image-2.4.24-sparc64, version 34.woody.1.  
(Is this the one you meant?)  But trying to install it gives a large 
number of depmod errors:

alcyone[23]:~# dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4.24-sparc64_34.woody.1_sparc.deb

There was a problem running depmod.  This may be benign, 
(You may have versioned symbol names, for instance).
Or this could be an error.
	depmod exited with return value 1
In any case, since depmod is run at install time, 
we could just defer running depmod
Would you like to abort now? [Yes] yes

Looks like it's been filed at http://bugs.debian.org/234442 .  Should I be 
worried, or go ahead and install it?
