Shouldn't the pre-/postinst fix this? Since it doesn't work on existing systems...

Yes. That's about when I got it. I've been trying to get a 2.6 kernel working for
about a year or so. The kernels availible in woody/sarge didn't work, hence I had
to upgrade to sid (2.6.17). I wasn't TO happy to be forced to upgrade to sid, but
it wasn't that big-a-deal..

First the 2.6.8 from sarge which didn't work, then 2.6.1 from sid which both
work (albeight the i8042/atkbd isn't loaded _with_ the kernel).

No worries. This have been my _only_ PPC/PegasOS issue, I bet
you've had miljons in the last year :)
