The attached patch seems to be for 2.4.26 though.

Can you please try :

  1) both the 2.4.27 and 2.6.8 debian-powerpc kernels ?

  2) booting d-i on your box with :

    (2.6.8 kernel)

    and :

    (2.4.27 kernel).

And tell us about your experience. I don't think the s3 trio fb is builtin in
those, but please give the serial console a try and tell us how this works.

Also, consider filling a bug report against kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc and
kernel-image-2.4.27-powerpc for all the problems you see, and asking for the
inclusion of s3fb or whatever its name is.
