As you address more than just me, I'll try to CC the Debian powerpc
list ... I hope this is OK ... :) - for this to work I changed the
"In-Reply-To" header in this email ... let's see how lucky I am with it

And Sorry if this isn't exactly the standard way ...

The one linked to from the message above should be the latest one I
uploaded, IIRC ..

I see with my current 2.6.25-rc3 the mouse disappear on an old
ti-book. Never, IIRC, on a newer alubook 5,8.
If you're already at it, why not trying to compile the latest git
sources? It should be easy after - possibly (?) - solving the package
dependencies for linux-image builds ... Mini HOWTO ... :) ... :
HOW TO BUILD A GIT KERNEL PACKAGE ON DEBIAN
$ cd kernel-factory/git/
$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
. .. linux-2.6
# Keep it up-to-date:
$ cd linux-2.6/
$ git pull
## Have a nice view on the kernel:
$ gitk --all &
## The compile, something like
time MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-1.23" fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version=-abcd1234 --revision=1234.56.78 kernel_image
You'll find a .config - about 2 months old or so - via the mailing
list URL above ...
