I installed it on a Titanium IV, 867 Mhz, and so far, nothing special:

What I don't like with this kernel: At its installation time I was
asked, IIRC, whether I want the previously installed yaboot or the new
mkvmlinuz as bootloader. I chose yaboot, but in spite of this
selection I cannot uninstall mkvmlinuz without uninstalling the new
2.6.10 altogether. 

Actually I thought it should be easy for the package manager
to see if mkvmlinuz is not needed. And consequently should let me get
rid of the tool ..
Or what did I miss ?

Thanks Sven .. :)
