Re: PowerMac kernels with GCC 2.95.1

No, it isn't gcc2.95, it is the kernel, the 2.2.x one. 2.3.x will boot, but
the curent kernel versions are so buggy with so many compile errors :-((

f50 is chrp, good to know.

Yes, something from OF -> linux is broken. 

Prep and powermac should compile and work with 2.2.x (>= 10) and gcc2.95. 
Chrp is broken for 2.2.x 

 If we in time for the release with 2.4, i'll put an extra kernel image for
chrp onto the boot-floppies. 
I have only one chrp system, and currently the auto-builder run on this
