Please look at :
And also at :
which contain unpacked kernels from the -power3 config.
Known problems are :
pcnet ethernet driver is modular. Most power3 boxes seem to use this
it is not known if the -benh tree i am using will work well on power3
boxes. benh told me that some other tree may be more adequated, i
don't remember which one though, will have to ask him about this.

Yeah, i did not build power3 config, since each config corresponds to 1
hour of build or so. But i did enable it on 2.4.25-2, so please use this
one, most probably either the -pmac kernel if you use yaboot, or the
-chrp-rs6k if you boot directly from OF (through netboot or other).
Also, of use would be a /proc/cpuingo output, in order to add support to
archdetect, once debian-installer images are built for it.
