That's great news, we are 30% there! When 2.6 started working on my Q840, it
was very similar, at first no ADB, no keyboard, but fortunately ethernet was
already working, so it did not matter to me.

So now we have only two problems to solve, maybe three.
First, get your boot ratio to 100%, is there any debugging I could activate
in the scsi driver?

Second, get your network to work, I think now that some mac patches have
made it into CVS, it won't take long until the network driver is fixed. I'll
have to look at it again, but I think something went wrong in compiling the

And finally, fix ADB for non Q840 macs, is there some debugging possible?

Thanks a lot for testing! As soon as this is fixed, I don't think we need to
keep 2.2 kernels for macs anymore.
