Well, 2.6.6-3 adds tracker packages, 2.6.6-4 adds tracker packages
*and* removes the g5 flavour.

What issue?

Cool.  You're getting there.

No.  The initrd should only contain the modules needed for bringing up
the root filesystem, and maybe using the console.  It is mkinitrd's
duty to figure out what's needed.  If the resulting initrd doesn't
work, it's a bug in mkinitrd and needs to be fixed.

This may sound a little harsh, but I went through this with the
Powermac support and it worked out very well.
