Re: Bug#382129: Beta3 won't boot on OldWorld PowerPC Mac

I just tried the etch Beta3 kernel on my Beige G3 OldWorld PowerPC Macintosh.

Same results as noted in the original bugreport by this number. It hangs almost immediately. The picture of Tux never appears at the top of the screen. See the original bug report for details.


Has *anybody* had any success getting the "Linux version 2.6.16-2- powerpc (Debian 2.6.16-17)" kernel to boot an OldWorld machine with BootX? Or *any* kernel after 2.6.15?

What has changed between the Sarge kernel (which boots just fine) and this one that would have such a catastrophic effect?
