i compiled it using sparc-elf-gcc -c test.c.
./sparc-elf-ld --entry=main test.o -o a.out
when i executed a.out on sparc machine it segfaulted and dumped core.
I guess 'cos you set entrypoint=main instead of __start or whatever it
You need to load in crtbegin.o (it may be called crt0.o), which
contains the correct entry point and calls main() and cleans up after
it, not just dive straight into main().
I wuold guess your segfault was caused by whatever non-existent code
your main() "returned" to :) You could just call _exit(3) instead
Or use "sparc-elf-gcc test.c", even better...
