Hi sparcers!

I'm just after finishing install UltraPenguin Linux on ultra sparc 1. In
distribution I found 2.1.44 binary and this kernel does not work (also
tftp boot image). Kernel included in updates works good. After this I want
to try recompile the latest kernel and I found .. garbage ;(. I see that
current kernel is completly unusable under sparc64. Because binary 2.1.85
works I supose that a place with patches for kernel which makes kernel
sources useable (is it true ?) exists somewhere. Does anyone kwnow
why patches for 2.1.85 or patched source is not included in updates or
wher I can fount this ? :)

Does anyone use under Linux sun quad T100 ethernet card ? I want to build
a file server (and router with uplink also on T100) for about 50-60 PC
workstations (students laboratories) on Linux/dos/win* platforms. I have
about 2 (maybe 3) months for decision to install this on Sun Solaris or
Linux (witch I prefer :). Now not all must work correctly on touching
finger. Any opinion abut trying to do this ?

Next things that binutils ( and the latest libc snapshot
(980222) I try to compile this and .. libc requires binnutils >= but seems that binutils haven't implemented three functions or
latest patch with sparc64 arangement is not completely included.
I found missing symbols only in bfd.h (bfd_elf32_size_dynamic_sections,
bfd_elf32_record_link_assignment and

gcc -O2 -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib -g -o ldgram.o ldlex.o lexsup.o
ldlang.o mri.o ldctor.o ldmain.o ldwrite.o ldexp.o ldemul.o ldver.o

Any other hints ;) ?
