How easy is it to upgrade the 68k sarge to a 2.6 kernel? I noticed

Not quite right, I uploaded new kernel packages for m68k, as you probably
saw, there is not only amiga, but eight other m68k subarches, that we build
Yes, I noticed the others but was only interested in the Amiga.
(There was no intention to disparage the others, but I only wanted to
post part of the messages for brevity and just enough for anybody
interested to google for them.)
If you try to install the new linux-image, it will tell you what it needs.
That's good. Obviously I should do this when I'm willing to tie up
my dialup for a long time! :-)
Depends: module-init-tools (>= 0.9.13), yaird | initramfs-tools | linux-initramfs-tool
module-init-tools should be in the archive, even in sarge, yaird is
available from here
As mentioned in
Please don't try the old kernels on the previous page. I better remove them
Please test, not only on Amiga but on the other arches, too, and report back
to this list any success/failure reports.
If I had some of the others, of course I would. It will take me
some time to set this up. Thank you for posting the details. Do I
point my aptitude at testing or unstable? Or both? Once the Amiga
2000HD is ready, I'll start with the CDROM installation for 68k sarge
that I bought from Abexia. Then I'll go online some weekend and try for
the 2.6.15 kernel or whatever is current. Hopefully it won't take that
