Re: Resurrecting Debian on SPARC

I would love to see Debian-on-SPARC continue on, even if not fully supported, similar to how the FreeBSD project handles sparc64[1]

I have access to a couple of UltraSPARC T2 systems (T5220/T5440) which could be made available for development and testing purposes -- ping me off-list for more info.

I would love to resurrect debian sparc 64, I can provide 2 t2000 Sun fires, and one v880, which are not on line at the moment, but I will use them for testing.
Also is there someone who made a CD image for a newer debian version to put on my Sun, so I don't have to build my own?

Indeed, that looks like it. Thanks for the heads-up!

I have already replied to the upstream bug report and will
provide assistance to help fixing the bug. I will also get
into contact with Matthias Klose (doko) and see what he
has to say.
