Hi Joël,

I've got an SS20 with dual hypersparc. Kernels post 2.6.21 boot okay,
run in general, but a 'make -j 3' build of the kernel aborts a couple of
times with a bus error or similar vague errors.

I'd be interested in a V8 repository.

      Hi folks,

      I have built a linux kernel on my SS20 (dual SM71) and it
      is stable in SMP configuration with HIGHMEM. I haven't tested with
HyperSPARC. Has anyone any information about HyperSPARC support ? I
shall test, but if someone has tried before me... ;-)

      I'm building deb packages to upgrade this workstation to
      debian/testing (with of course only V8 support not V8+). I don't know if
someone can be interested, but I think we can open a depot for sparc-V8
package. I think I shall open an anonymous ftp server next week, but I
won't do anything if I'm alone.




You can download first debian packages (strict V8) on http://newton.systella.fr/~bertrand/sparc32. I have uploaded a kernel (with built-in SX framebuffer support). URL can changes soon...
