Well, I grabbed the vmlinux - 2.2.7 vger from ftp.linuxppc.org, and I havn't had a
kernel panic since. This is good.

Machine Info (touched up):

has a CSII 10/T ethernet card, and an 8x SCSI CD.

The 54xx/52xx machines also aparently have wonkey SCSI controllers, but I'm not
positive on that.

Anyways -- long story short: I can't upgrade libreadline without everything
segfaulting afterwards.

I upgraded everything else with apt, and put libreadline, bash, netbase, and
netstd on hold in order to do it. Whether I upgrade by hand (following the FAQ I
found on upgrading  bash -- from the libc5 to libc6 mini howto) or let apt do it
(which follows the same order) after libreadline gets installed, all of the
installer scripts go bust, and everything else quickly follows.

So, is it my bad karma, my machine, or a poorly compiled libreadline package? If
it's the package, I suppose I should file a bug against it. And if a bug needs to
be filed, is it the same package maintainer for all platforms?

And one other little thing -- what are the appropriate options to make gpm work? I
pointed it at /dev/adbmouse- but there was no "mac" mouse available in the
list...which I assume is normal.
