Thank you! I was not aware of the sparc64 port.
And now I guess I've missed the point where sparc was removed from sid.


Is there a way of switching to sparc64 port directly from wheezy?

I don't know for sure, but it doesn't seem so.

Some more problems:
1) some useful packages had failed to compile on sparc64, but succeeded on sparc; 2) sparc[64]-only packages has been auto-removed from the Debian archive, after sparc architecture removal from sid (as there are no longer any build target left for them):

So it looks like we must find what's got removed, restore it from http://snapshot.debian.org/ and then re-upload that bunch to the debian-ports with help of someone... And then fix all the FTBFS bugs.

http://popcon.debian.org/ shows there is one user of the sparc64 port.
Is it you?

Unfortunately, no.
The last time I tried Debian on SPARC, it was Debian Squeeze (or Lenny?) "sparc" (yes, 64-bit kernel + 32-bit userland) on Sun Ultra 10.

But now it's time for me to get access to that machine again ;-)

Best wishes,
