wait a minute, afterburner is an 060 board?

Then make one. Or at least give us the patches you want included and a
config file.
But I don't think we want to make another subarch for afterburner, unless of
course you make the required patches to the boot-floppies.

PS If the kernel breaks its a kernel problem. I just want you to discuss and
fix it there. The kernel hackers are on the kernel list, many of them do not
read the debian list. When its fixed, you come back with a patch and a
config file, and we build a kernel-image package. Ok?

PS2 did anybody test the new kernel-patch package (2.2.10) from Nick
already? I built an amiga kernel with that and it has been working for some
hours, even with some (ariadne2) patches missing, when I compared it to my
old image packages. Unfortunately it has been running only for a few hours,
maybe my machine does not like kernels built in AD2000? Or it was again the
gvpii driver, but I did not see any messages.
