The 2.6.12-sven64_1_powerpc.deb that was tested can be found at

This kernel fails to boot a dual 970FX G5 (PowerMac7,3). I'm not sure what
the relevant parts you need are, but after the initial start it
switches to a reverse video terminal mode, runs for a bit and prints
about a screenful of data ending with

time_init: decrementer frequency 33.333333 Mhz
smp_core99_kick_cpu done
smp_core99_setup_cup 0 done


which I copied by hand. If you need some other input from earlier let
me know what you are looking for (its a pain to copy it all by
hand). Here is the cpuinfo for this machine running 2.6.8-power4-smp

~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

Sorry for the sketchy info - my job has kept me off my G5 Linux box
for the last few months and I've lost touch with the little idea I had
about what is useful :-(
