What vmlinuz should I be using?
~$ dpkg -L linux-image-2.6.12-1-powerpc64 | grep vml
~$ ls -l /boot/vmlinux.old /boot/initrd.img.old
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 29 2005-08-18 22:44 /boot/initrd.img.old -> initrd.img-2.6.12-1-powerpc64
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 26 2005-08-18 22:44 /boot/vmlinux.old -> vmlinux-2.6.12-1-powerpc64
and, yes, I'm booting via with yaboot. I'm really stumped on why this
kernel is not booting my machine when it works for Daniel (who also
has a PowerMac7,3). Am I missing something obvious?
