Hey, cool. so ARCH=ppc will work both for apus and prep, and the rest should go with ARCH=powerpc. This is the case both for 2.6.16 and the upcoming
2.6.17, right ?

I don't remember when he fixed it precisely but I think 2.6.16 got it

Do you know if there are SMP PReP machines around ? I think i will do only a
UP -prep flavour.

There were at least dual 604 PreP boards.

The IBM 7043-240 is a dual-cpu system, I think it's PReP?

Thanks for the info.

SMP never worked under Linux on those machines because the AIX boot
sequence to enable it was never successfully reverse-engineered.

Ah, ok, then it makes no sense to build a special kernel for those, until more
information is found about the above.

I have a Motorola MTX PreP system with dual 604e's that I can test this

I was referring to the IBM 7043. No idea how it applies to the MTX.
