Re: Lombard [which base?]

Good! Probably a newer kernel now. I used the 2.2.6 from LinuxPPC in
mid July. And tried the patch with the 2.2.10 vger kernel source but
it didn't work (The MMU error [Kernel panic]).

Sorry, can't do it soon. Unfortunately the Lombard's user is overseas
with it now in UK.

As for the base:

I suggest the 2.1.8-1999-02-24 base2_2.tgz at:


I used that to install the Lombard G3 powerbook using apt. No problems,

If it helps, a non-updated mirror of the potato powerpc distribution
of potato as of the early morning of Jul 31st (Australian  time) is
here at:


I used it to install an iMac. Perl wasn't much of a problem then.

Good Luck,
