I can't help to debug the 2.4.17 for the Mac part, but I am running it on
another m68k machine (Amiga with a 68060).
The compile get well after a small patch on a QOS module. I use it every day
and it boots and run pretty good. The only problem I have noticed is with
the "apt-get" programm which hangs often (all times ?).
I can't do the following sequence without hanging :
1) apt-get update
2) apt-get upgrade
The system freeze some times at the first step, some times at the second leaving
a /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin twice the size #6Mo instead of #3Mo. The same
operation sequence works OK with a 2.2.20 home compiled kernel.
I am playing with all the TCP/IP stuff : netfilter (iptables), QOS (cbq and
classes), all seems to work properly and reliably.
If I can help to test some other parts, let me know how can I help.
I din't have much time to spent on testing, but I am using Linux since many
years, I own and use three different Debian "flavours" i386, ppc and m68k.
