Can you send me your kernel image? I have been trying to boot my RS/6000 E20 with Debian, but had no success -- just because of the SCSI drivers. I would like to try your kernel. Maybe I can even help you with your problem then :-).


PS: Is it possible to build a linux kernel under AIX (with gcc)? Is there a howto on setting up a cross-compiling environment under Debian GNU/Linux?
