Re: I need some advice with my ppc64
you got further than me. I found no debian installer willing to boot
without kernel panic on my dual 2.3 ghz g5.
therefor i am stuck with ydl and gentoo at the moment.
when looking for 64bit debian packages you should have a look at
debian.gonicus.de. Originally this repository was made for ibm openpower
systems which have also built in an 64bit powerpc chip.
