Hi ppl,

just reporting on 2.6.0-test1 on sparcs:

i am trying to compile linux-2.6.0-test1-{mm1,mm2,ac1,ac2)
on 2 differents sparcs, both latest debian sid & gcc-3.2.3:

ultra enterprise 1 (sun4u sparc64)
sparc station 4 (sun4m sparc32)

on both i need to enable PCI support even
when these boxes doesn't have a PCI bus,
i think the main bus is SBUS and i get
errors when compiling the Sun ESP scsi
controller about functions for DMA depending
on PCI. I don't think is convenient for
these old boxes having support for PCI
because enlarge the kernel and it really
doesn't have that type of bus.

And when i enable PCI support the sparc32
compiles fine but hangs inmediately on boot.
The sparc64 doesn't compile with ac2 patch:

arch/sparc64/kernel/built-in.o(.init.text+0x3bcc): In function `pdev_cookie_fillin':
: referencia a `pci_remove_bus_device' sin definir
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

The others mentioned kernels hangs when booting.

Yes, i have selected proper configuration for the

I even tried both CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE set to y/n

Any help will be apreciated as i really want
the 2.6 kernels support both sparc32 and sparc64
boxes, googling i found but
is down and in the sparclinux archives there are
patches but they appear to be applied on linus
2.6.0-test1 kernel.
