Gee ubuntu is still working with 2.6.10. I think its time for me to stop
being lazy and compile my own kernel. Just a question, if you or an
other has an IBook G4, any indications concerning kernel version and
config, I usually avoid the latest version,
I want to have appropriate sleep support and obviously working usb wifi.
