Announcing powerpc backport 2.6.12-6 kernel package for sarge


I have made available backport packages of the linux-2.6 common kernels for
powerpc for sarge. You will find all that is needed at :


or the apt source :

  deb http://people.debian.org/~luther/kernel ./

These packages include :

  1) backported kernel-package, to be able to build the powerpc 2.6.12 kernels.

  2) backported udev, which is needed for 2.6.12 and beyond kernels. I
  disabled the selinux support though, as it is not present in sarge.

  3) backported 32bit powerpc kernel packages. These are exactly the same as
  the sid/etch ones (2.6.12-6), but i was forced to disable the 64bit
  powerpc64 version, since there is no biarch toolchain in sarge. That said,
  installing the sid/etch kernels would have worked just fine, so if you are a
  64bit user, please download linux-image-2.6-12-powerpc64 from etch/sid by

Ok, i hope you all enjoy those.
