How easy is it to upgrade the 68k sarge to a 2.6 kernel? I noticed on another Debian mailing list that 2.6.15 is being prepared for Amiga.

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! :-)

Package: linux-image-2.6.15-1-amiga
Version: 2.6.15-4
Section: base
Priority: optional
Architecture: m68k
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 long!
