Hi guys,

I'm nearly finished with my Gentoo Installation on an old Ultra 5. After several issues I just need to get silo up and running but compiling fails with the following message:
Code:

As a matter of fact I haven't... shame on me, but thanks for the pointer in the right direction :oops:

seems that 2.4 (and hence sparc-sources) is now unsupported...
I opened that bug report. guess i'm not going to waste the next few days compiling/upgrading my Ultra1 167mhz to 2.6.

I am in a similar boat. I have three Ultra 2E's happily running web services on the 2.4 kernel. I have recently updated world with only silo being a problem. Someday I will likely make the effort to upgrade to 2.6. Silo alone doesn't motivate me.

2.6 is better maintained these days compared to 2.4. This means security bugs too.
The 2.4-supporting profiles will go away when 2007.1 ships, and we won't work on solving 2.4-related bugs either at this point (thus the resolution being "upgrade").
Also note that 2.6 kernels are generally more responsive and faster than 2.4 on the same hardware.

and i'm sure some of us do understand that. i'm running the last profile that supports the 2.4 kernel. but to be honest, my Ultra1 runs NTP, Leafnode, and a couple of other "network" services. it isn't even publicly accessible anyways. now, get a better idea of this, Ultra1 167mhz 128mb RAM - a kernel compile of 2.4.x takes me 12+hours. i'm absolutly lazy to not waste a couple of hours to config a 2.6 kernel... spend the next 12+hours compiling, and then finding something i missed. i took me a couple of attempts to get a 2.4 kernel config that i was quite satisfied with. I will not waste my precious little time with 2.6 until i have to re-install. (if i have to consider that option - i will rather go work my my 02 Trans Am in my garage)

You can just use the InstallCD kernel, it has all the drivers needed to boot/work and goodies like netfilter in modules.
Also you can use it's config easily via /proc/config.gz to build your own.
I'm not saying that you should, if 2.4 is working for you then that's fine too, it's more of a general "rant" about people not being able to get a proper config working (and one being easily available under their noses), usually on new installs :-)
