checking in -
i have been trying the 2.6.17 kernel on my old lcIII/performa450
(68030 no FPU).
its a bit of a mish-mash, how i did.
ran apt-get install module-init-tools and initramfs-tools
(which brought in about 12 more packages to resolve dependencies)
ran dpkg install l*2.6*deb
editing initramfs-tools/config to modules=dep
mkinitramfs -o initrd-dep-test
copy that back up to hfs mac space with kernel to boot w/penguin.
(all above done on base sarge install, added etch cd-rom of
8-10-06 for init tools etc via apt-cdrom ... )
(part of this i did booted from emile resue disc for speedier a little)
trying to boot right now i get hang up right after it identifies
the scsi devices, i think maybe i should check or redo the initrd again.
the errors read :
block_queue_max_hardware_segments:set to minimum 1
(repeated 10x -between around scsci device idents, followed by)
"bus error in macscsi_pread"
i took me a few tries with the ppc arch. well.
the system will still boot 2.2 kernel. it just complains about
missing udev support briefly, skips it.
i was thinking about i should configure slattach and then i could
log in with a serial cable via the one of my old world powemacs.
in case it does boot eventually, i could work with it that way, i
could have a xterm window on serial line IP...
i also tried still booting the 540 again. i need it to at least get
into the system, version of the kernel, before i am going to
try all that compiling... It should boot, at least, right ? but
it does same thing as 2.6 here is panic/stack trace (so much
output i can't see what happened).
i am trying to see to acess /build new cross
compiler. (i can't stand osX/gratis past Jaguar, so I have to use the
