no, this was a netboot install. I noticed some month ago that also netboot 
images on other archs are broken - today a colleque told me on amd64 it's
now working again.

But the sparc wheezy boot.img for tftp booting is still from 20140426 - a 
newer is not available.

So probably the sparc kernel modules on the mirrors are now for a newer kernel
than the one in that netboot img.

Any ideas how to solve that ?
