Yeah, removed cpufreq and powerbook support for now.
BTW, you don't recommend it, but would it still be ok for using
The idea is to do the initial installation with 2.4, as there is not yet
framework for 2.6 kernels, and then, in stage 2 of the installation,
install a 2.4 or 2.6 kernel, user choice.
Anyway, now that i have the 2.4.25 package out, i will be doing a 2.6.3
BTW, i only built a SMP version of the -power4 kernel. Do you think this
is ok, as i believe most power4 boxes are/will be SMP ones. How big is
the performance hit on single processor using the SMP kernel ?
/me wonders if i could get a fast G5 box sponsored, since it took me
two damn days to get these kernels built on my 1GHz G4 :).
