And after login these errors:

INIT: Id "c4" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "c5" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

I compiled the vanilla-sources and not the sparc-sources, maybe a forgot some important module?
thanks

Nah, no biggie, basically you need to modify /etc/inittab for headless machines.
Comment out the c1-c6 entries (or replace "respawn" with "off") and add/enable/uncomment (i think it was added on a recent baselayout, not sure though) for ttyS0, kinda like:
s0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 9600 ttyS0 linux
Replace 9600 with the appropiate baud rate you have for the OBP console too, you usually don't want different ones.
