Bug#122769: Debian PowerPC/PReP Boot floppies do not work on stock IBM 6015 machines
So, in short, you are saying that:
(a) powerpc prep boot-floppies should use 2.4 kernels, and
(a) the 2.4 kerne we use needs the patch from
Regarding (a), it requires thought, but I'm not against it if it
increases the number of models we support and has been tested.
Regarding (b), you need to file a bug against the prep kernel image
source package, in short, kernel-patch-2.4.16-powerpc, asking that
this patch be applied. Please check first whether that kernel image
(kernel-image-2.4.16-powerpc_2.4.16-1_powerpc.deb) already contains
this patch or doesn't need it for other reasons.
