The original tree is at bk://ppc.bkbits.net/linuxppc-2.5-benh.  And
there are rsync mirrors at source.mvista.com::linuxppc-2.5-benh and

Jens thank you for your help on that link.. i have been able to rsync.

Now with 2.6.0-test7 as long as test8 I have not been able to get my text console except with video=ofonly but then from the very first time using that with my orig. 22" flat panel, X does not work.  Here are all the options I used:

append="video=aty128fb:1600x1023-24@85"    no
append="video=aty128fb:vmode:20-24"            no
append="video=ofonly"                                       only text ttys work
append="video=r128"                                         no
append="video=aty128fb"                                  no
append="video=aty128"                                     no
append="video=aty128fb:vmode:22"                 just one xsession but no other tty text or x sessions can be used

even blank.. no appending video

The only thing which i have been able to do is run one X session with append="video=aty128fb:vmode:22"  on my flat panel.  I  have gdm set up to run 2 xsessions and only the first xsession works.  The second one the power light just flashes amber along with the other ttys and is a blank screen.  I can figure that yes.. it is a frame buffer issue but I am at a loss esp since I am not a programmer but have been using and compiling kernels for over 4.5 years now and I am stumped. 

I am looking so forward to be using some of the new features in 2.6 but have been blocked by this hurtle.
