I know -- we need to get this compiled, but I need help from the
debian-powerpc crew for that.
You could also help. Are you comfortable compiling a local .deb package? I'd
be happy to walk you through. Your success or failure would help me in
pressuring the Debian porting crew :)
Akmal> package is quite important because octave2.0 is also broken on ppc.
Err, how come? I see that 188.8.131.52-6, the most recent version, exists for
powerpc in the archive. Could you detail how it breaks?
Our DSL access will be shut off September 10 due to the bankruptcy of Rhythms,
and the inability of Ameritech to respond in a timely fashion. An optimistic
view is that we might be back online by the end of September. -- Dirk
