Trouble with upgrade to unstable on SS20 SMP
I had Woody running on this thing for a while, and recently decided to
upgrade to unstable (new QFE card - want iptables for a router/Squid
box). I am having a bit of a problem, though - doing apt-get
dist-upgrade fails, saying that due to my CPU, libc6 (= 2.3.2.ds1-13)
needs kernel 2.4.21 or greater.
Okay, so I apt-get install kernel-image-2.4-sparc32-smp, and get unmet
dependency warnings on libc6 (2.2.5-11.5).
I am stuck - can't upgrade the kernel w/o libc, can't upgrade libc w/o
the kernel. Something appears to be broken in the dist-upgrade system -
either that, or my machine has something screwy about it.
2xTI SuperSparc 50's (per /proc/cpuinfo), maybe?
Is there a way to shoehorn unstable on this without running headlong
into dependency hell? I mean, short of compiling a kernel on my Sparc
(ZZZZZzzzzz....) is there some magic switch or command I overlooked to
just make it work?
