I have a SparcSTATION 20 with dual SuperSPARC-II/75, 448 MB of RAM,

kernel (official / no-SMP). If I replace both processors by one (or two)
HyperSPARC/200 (from ROSS), the workstation boots but... dpkg returns
segfaults, esp driver seems to be broken (SCSI bus reset...)... Is there
anywhere a patch to fix this ? I have seens some patches for 2.6.11 kernel
(sparc32-hypersparc-srmmu.patch), but no one for recent kernel.
Any idea ?
Hm, I believe that no patches should be necessary. I've finally managed to
install 2.6.16 on my ss20 with hypersparc processor, it worked ok so far,
but I wasn't really stressing it. From experience, it is really picky
about memory layout, and a total of 448MB strikes me as slightly odd. Try
leaving something like 128MB and see whether the situation will improve.
