Hey, great! What is is: PReP or CHRP?
Matt Porter works allready on PReP.
I have an Longtrail-II, so it is a CHRP.
What i need is mainly docu for setting up kernel + ramdisk on different powerpc
The source for boot-floppies is available on
Get also the pointerize_0.1_powerpc.deb package (Thanks Matt for pointing this out).
We have currently a floppy space problem (not only powerpc, all other architectures also)
for the linux-2.2.x (the modules) and glibc-2.1 and the ramdisk size. Please don't work
on the scripts, we will change this in the near future.
But you can describe boot-parameters for your IBM PowerPC, test the .config file (is is
useful as it is now? same url as above but ~koptein/Config/*), does initrd work,
need your special bootparameters for netbooting, ...
Sven: if you read this: can you do this also for apus?
Has someone an mbx system?
Feanor: you for powermac??
