Kernel installation is broken on powerpc when choosing testing.
base/kernel-installer choose the 2.4.25 kernel, while it has not yet
made it into testing (9 days of 10 so it will be soon).
Still, i believe that base/kernel-installer should have warned that
there is no appropriate kernel available, instead of silently installing
a wrong one.
Also, the -powerpc-small .udebs are still installed, pulled in by the
lvm stuff and the ext3 and reiserfs partman, if i remember well.
It is seriously broken that a module for a kernel different than the one
running is downloaded.
Apart from that, and the yaboot issue, everything seems to be working
fine. About yaboot, i should seriously think about porting yaboot to
pegasos, despites Ethan's claim that i should not and work on yaboot2
instead, since it seems nobody apart me and the pegasos users are doing
regular full installs.
