Well, i maybe over-reacted some, but each time you replied, either on the
kernel upgrades and such, you over-reacted, reread your emails from then, and
see why i think you where screaming murder.

I gave advice, maybe not the best one, but something which may have allowed
him to build packages in the short run, which altough not a long term
solution, in general has some benefit in that it allows to quicker go to
solving other possible problems. And i did so in good faith.

So, i hope that next time you will reconsider your post, and instead of going
on the bashing end, say the exact same thing in a non-confrontational way, is
this much asking ? I mean this is already the fourth time in the few past
month that i did get this kind of tone from you, and it is seriously not-nice.

So, again, apologizes for taking it badly, but please next time try it in a
calmer tone :)

Yep, joeyh already pointed that out to me. Still i am not convinced, since no
binaries are built, and it would make perfect sense to build the powerpc
documentation on a i386 machine, or such, but you are the expert here.
