I tried the kernel on my G4 aluminium (1.33 GHz, 2004) powerbook, but
the screen was flickering and there was a "ghost image" approx. 5 cm
to the right of the real one, so everything was unreadable (same
phenomenon both in X and the console) I rebooted and didn't test
anything else. If there is an obvious workaround/setting, or any
debug information I can send, please let me know.

I don't know if it is powerpc specific, but removing the kernel
removes /boot/vmlinux (whereas installing a new kernel updates it, the
"sensible" behaviour to me would be restoring it to the previous
version) so I had to create it manually. It is possible to automate
this (like grub does?)
