powerpc d-i daily builds reactivated, use 2.6.12 kernels, including 64bit kernels, miboot floppies dropped for now.


Since the 2.6.12 powerpc kernel in the archive now support 64bit kernels,
thanks to the work of the toolchain guys with regard to biarch on ppc, i have
uploaded kernel .udebs and triggered new reorganised daily builds of the sid
debian-installer images.

I was forced to disable the floppy builds for now, since they failed to build,
and the 2.6.12 kernels are 200K too big anyway for miboot floppies, we need to
find out how to make them smaller, and solve the non-freeness of miboot for
the etch release.

Also, as said, the power3 and power4 flavours have gone, replaced with a
single powerpc64 one.

Now, the 2.6.12 kernels are not yet in testing, so these images cannot be used
to install etch, only sid, which may be broken for other reasons, and
base-installer has been changed to know about the new kernels, so neither etch
is installable for now, nor is sarge.

Manty, can you also have a look at the cd/dvd isos generation stuff to take
those new images and kernels in account, if not i will have a quick look next
week. Also, the install/pegasos script on the sarge isos is empty, i wonder
what happened there.

Anyway, please all enjoy, test and provide feedback for these new images.
