i've just got a mac clone - umax apus 2000 (aka c500). now, got a debian
on it as well :) the installation was pretty trivial (surprise :)).
but now, i want to have my own kernel. i've tried compiling 2.2.14,
2.3.51, linux-pmac-devel and -stable from linuxcare. no luck :(
i mean, the compilation was successful. no errors till the end, i got
nice vmlinux, copied it to "linux kernels" in "system folder", so i can
choose it in bootx. but then, every time i boot from my kernel, i got
Serial driver version 4.92 (2000-1-27) with MANY_PORTS SHARE_IRQ SERIAL_PCI enabled
Machine check in kernel mode.

Kernel panic: machine check.
the line with "task" differs a bit with different kernels, but there's
always "swapper" (afair).
do i miss somethink here? some magic trick to make the compiled kernel
working? or maybe there's an option in the kernel that must be checked
but i missed it somehow? or something? :/ please tell me, i badly want
sound and ipv6 (it's not compiled in the 2.2.12 i got after installation).
use gnus not guns!
