Well here is the situation. Dept had a lab with SPARC
based Solaris machines that were phased out in summer
(over my objections). I needed the environment to teach
first computer archt course with some assembly language
thrown in. Intel processor assembly requires a much
bigger effort (on part of students) which defeats the puprpose
of the course. So, I thought that I could put together
the SPARC back, if I am able to boot a SPARC version of
Linux (with gcc, gas, text-editor and networking) under
qemu. Hence the barrage of questions. GUI is a non-issue.

Couldn't you just build a crosscompiler and cross-binutils and
then use qemu-sparc instead of qemu-system-sparc, i.e. using
user emulation instead of whole system emulation ?
