PPC64 version of the 2.6.8 kernel

Dear all,

I have just, for the first time, booted into my brand-new 64-bit kernel on my G5.

The kernel source was apt-got - kernel-source-2.6.8-powerpc.
The steps to install the toolchain are pointed out on www.linuxppc64.org (just follow toolchain). The kernel config file was found lists.debian.org (searching for ppc64 kernel package).

Everything went like a dream. Booted perfectly first time - X started first time - happy camper!

Can someone please point me to where I can find out which ppc features work (or don't work) in ppc64?

I have read somewhere that thermal does not work in 64-bit - hence my fans going at full blast.


My next mini-project is to get my BenQ AWL400 wireless USB working. If anyone has any hints about this I would be grateful.


Paddy.
