2.6.16-rc2 sparc32 (and sparc64) kernel images available


I've committed the changes to build sparc32 images to the experimental branch of the svn and run a test build. The resulting images are available for download at http://www.wooyd.org/debian/kernels/. As soon as other
arches will take care of updating configs, the images built from this
source will be uploaded to experimental. If you would like to fiddle with them in the meantime, you can rebuild the images using (approximately) the following procedure:

$ wget http://people.debian.org/~fs/linux-2.6_2.6.15+2.6.16-rc2.orig.tar.gz
$ tar xzf linux-2.6_2.6.15+2.6.16-rc2.orig.tar.gz
$ cd linux-2.6_2.6.15+2.6.16-rc2
$ svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/kernel/dists/exp/linux-2.6/debian
$ fakeroot debian/rules debian/control
$ dpkg-checkbuilddeps
$ sparc32 fakeroot debian/rules binary

You can also build individual flavours by replacing the last command with
(in the example below only sparc32 image will be built)

$ fakeroot debian/rules debian/build debian/stamps
$ fakeroot make -f rules.gen binary-arch-sparc-none-sparc32

Please share your experiences. Note that yaird has some problems with 2.6.16, so you might have better luck with using initramfs-tools as your
initrd generator.

Thanks and best regards,
