kernel-patch-2.4.22-powerpc and multiple subarches.
I am lmost ready to generate kernel-image packages for the various
different subarches, but i have still a few questions which needs to be
1) Well, doing this without changes to make-kpkg would mean have as
many copies of the modules as there is kernel-image packages. Since
each of them take around 8-10Mo, this would mean lot of bloat. Is this
ok, or should i make a modules-image package and have the
kernel-images depend on it. (this is more of a question to the about
to be created debian-linux-kernel list or something, i think).
2) i have tried building a ibmchrp package, and it fails in highmem.c.
That has made me ask question about the config files. Is it ok to
build all 5 subarches (old-pmac, new-pmac, prep, chrp & chrp-rs6k)
from the same set of config files, or will we need something
particular for some of the non-pmac ? As i am not that familiar with
the rs6k hardware, i would like to know opinion of people knowing
So, if we go ahead with this, we will again support all of the powerpc
subarches, and not only the powermacs as it is done currently. Still
apus would use its own kernel (which does not build udebs, Michel could
you look into it if we want to have debian-installer support for apus),
and mbx, altough i am not sure we support this one.
