I was just joking, i know perfectly well how you got the kernel and what that
situation is :)

Try :

  apt-get source kernel-patch-powerpc-2.4.27

And look a bit into it. What would be of interest to you is the config/nubus
file or something such. You can disable the builds of the non-nubus configs in

the patch is taken from the nubus project, at sourceforge i think.

If you go working on that one, it would be great if you where to try it out
with the official kernel, so that futur debian/nubus users could profit from
it too.

I think the developer was Joel (?) Knight or someone such, and both the patch
and the config file are from him, so it is well possible that it will work. He
posted here at the start of the year or something.
