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
2) sparc-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?
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 ;-)
