I believe many of those are upstream issues or so. The older packages
had no problems, since i asked for their removal, and reassigned all
their packages to 2.4.22. The bugs are at :
The issues i see are mostly of the kind : scsi driver not working,
probably worth merging, and checking with a newer kernel if this is
still the case, the brightness issue we talked here some time ago, and
the various xfree86, atyfb and m3mirror issues.
These are often stuff coming from the 2.2.x kernels i never maintained,
and maybe from the potato time.
