BTW, do you use (or not) the kernels i produce with the
kernel-patch-2.4.21-powerpc package ? I have an (older from before i
became maintainer of the packages) bug report that it results in too big
a kernel udeb or something such (Bug#197460 that is).
Also, i guess the kernel package contains actually two kernels, the
powermac vmlinux, and the compressed vmlinux.coff older macs use.
It is probable i will also add the compressed vmlinuz CHRP box uses, but
i think they need to have the initrd embedded or something such.
