Re: Current debian kernels don't work on McKinley?

I don't think the problem comes from the chipset: I'm happily running Debian on a dual 1.5GHz 6MB zx6000 workstation. So, zx1 chipset, Madison CPUs.
If zx6000s with McKinley CPUs are known to be unbootable, I think we're holding the culprits.
BTW, do current non-Debian packaged kernels still boot on Merced/McKinley?

Hi folks,
   The currently packaged kernels in Wheezy and Sid will not boot on
   most of our machines (rx2600 and zx6000, one and two procesor

   The kernels seem to boot on the one montecito machine we have that
   I can reboot.  I don't know whether the difference is zx1 vs zx2
   chipset or the  processor.

   It's been a while since I used a Debian-packaged kernel --- is
   there a trick to getting them to work, other than apt-get install?
