<shrug> if you do this once in a while, this is ok.... kernel-package
doesn't facilitate doing kernel development though.

yes, but we fixed a lot of hppa bugs in 2.4.19. you're just lucky
that you haven't run into them yet. :-) in particular i think the
following things in glibc need a 2.4.19 hppa kernel: get/setcontext,
signals with 64-bit kernels, LFS support.... i've probably missed
Debian GNU/Linux Developer, hppa/ia64 ports
