I built myself a new 2.4.19 kernel package, using the kernel-source-2.4.19-hppa
version 22.1 found in testing and I've also upgraded libc6; so far, so good.  I
mailed the updated config to Grant, to overwrite my old one 2.4.18 version that
was published at:  ftp://ftp.parisc-linux.org/kernels/32/config-2.4.19-712

One comment, about this whole mess of libc6 being dependant upon kernel 2.4.19:

The consequence is that someone who upgrades libc6 to 2.3.1 cannot use the Woody
installation media as a rescue CD anymore, because chroot fails using these libs
with the older kernel 2.4.17 included and used to boot the Woody install CD.

If the current plan is to standardize on libc6 2.3.1 or newer for Sarge, please
consider putting a warning in the pre-install script, stating that this version
cannot work with kernels older than 2.4.19 and this prevents using a Debian 3.0
installation media as a rescue floppy; only current CD versions can work here.

I'm sure this would save a lot of newbies from unnecessary headaches.
