erm, after a bit of RTFMing and reading earlier threads in this list, i
start getting it. i have tried the multiarch kernel package from Sven.
(http://people.debian.org/~luther/ppc64/) it works nicely, except the
fan goes really full speed, much higher than using the 2.6.11-power4.

I have also tried to install a pppc64 chroot as explained in
http://debian-ppc64.alioth.debian.org/READ_ME , but:

sudo debootstrap --arch ppc64 \
 --exclude=gcc-3.3-base,libstdc++5,libdb3 \
 --include=gcc-4.0-base,libstdc++6 \
 sarge ppc64.chroot http://debian-ppc64.alioth.debian.org/gcc4
I: Validating aptitude
I: Retrieving aptitude
W: http://debian-ppc64.alioth.debian.org/gcc4/pool/main/a/aptitude/aptitude_0.2.15.9- was corrupt
E: Couldn't download aptitude

when using sid instead, i just get:
E: Couldn't download gcc-4.0-base

i have debootstrap 0.2.45-0.2 installed. any idea?

thanks, paul
