This sounds like a hardware problem. The newer images should all work on sparc64 with a few
images that don't.
Can you make sure the memory is ok, i.e. by installing Solaris?
The system had a previously working Debian install, just old.
I also found luckliy the older kernel probably from the CD:
Linux narya 5.9.0-2-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Debian 5.9.6-1 (2020-11-08)
and with this one the system appears running stable in SMP (32 CPUs!). I
did some massive compilation on all 32 CPUs, stressed a bit the system
and it appears working.
I'd say the system is quite stable, no memory errors.
