Re: Some .debs are 404
i am no expert on debian or on older kernels,
however i am finding it extrememely useful to
have a backup mirror the last few weeks especially
specifically to debian.ftp.
i am currently having good luck with oregonstate.
debian-etch, kernel2.6.16-2, powerbook pismo g4
have you tried the sarge kernels 2.6.8, i believe
that officially 2.4 support is plan to be drop in
etch. my old worlds seeming to having trouble with
latest kernels so i may have to go this route...
(have two running sarge with 2.6.8 now ...)
