Which version of linux-headers are you running? Can you do an `emerge
- -pv linux-headers` and show the output?
I have no experience with SPARC32, but 2.4 is a fine kernel, and not
wholly different (from a user/administrator perspective) than 2.6. You
have to use devfs instead of udev. .:shrug:.
I know a little about running (Hardened) Gentoo Linux 2.4/2.6 on SPARC64,
although I imagine it's not drastically different for the SPARCStation 5.
So let's start with your kernel-headers version and go from there. Also,
if you could post /usr/src/linux/.config and (if possible) any dmesg
output, that'd be great.
