powerpc.debian.org set up
Good day folks,
As you might know I have a PowerPC as loan for Debian here. This
machine is supposed to help development of binary-powerpc and
This machine now is set up. Hopefully it stays alive and doesn't
crash again. I have added another 1gb disk so we should be able to
work on it.
There is still a problem as Linux should boot from the internal ide
drive which fails. This needs an experienced kernel hacker which I am
not. If it boots from that disk we have 2gb disk space for Linux.
This is Apples DR 2.1 together with linux-pmac 2.1.42 - which patches
should have been included in the Linux kernel by now.

needs to install the appropriate packages. I have installed a version
of dpkg. I'm not sure if all of its tools are present. So files can
be installed - but binary-powerpc doesn't work because they use shared
Every maintainer who wants to work on the machine will get an account
on the machine. Just drop me a line.
Unfortunately the filesystem is quite unstable and if the machine
crashes the affected filesystems are completely screwed and need to be
re-installed. So please be careful...
The PowerPC will get an alias powerpc.debian.org and is now reachable
Now its up to you if we use the machine and if we develop
