    Well, very productive day at work. :)

    I tried a go at a 2.4.5-pre3 kernel optimized for ppc and had a no go

    I did notice though, that my r128 driver somehow is compiled from 4.0.1
source whereas everything else is at 4.0.3-3 or 4.0.2. Hmmm. I can't seem to
find the r128 source anywhere though.

    I read somewhere that BootX did not like XFree86-4 before 2.4.x for the
Lombard. Don't know if that is true after todays work.

    I was though, quite happy that sound worked >right< after reboot with
the new kernel, thats a first.
