Debian on F50...
I've had a Debian running happily on a 7025/F50
RS/6000 for a number of years, after follows some
steps posted on this mailing list. Using the rsync
sources from source.mvista.com, I've had both 2.4.x
and 2.6.x kernels working. 2.6 really made it fly,
gnome is now pretty quick to use.
I initially I was copying the kernel to floppy or CD
and using the SMS to boot the rootfs on the internal
disks; however in recent times I was able to get
yaboot to install and work.
Sadly looks like I have to soon give up my desktop
(well under-desk) machine and swap it for an intel
Would anyone be interested in me posting my kernel
.configs or my XF86Config-4? I didn't know if any of
the ppc maintainers might find them useful?
Cheers Rich Wale.
