I found a few accounts of v880 debian install attempts but no one seems

attempts with smaller tftp image sizes as recent as October of last

Has anyone been able to get the linux kernel to boot in any fashion on
a v880?



I'd be willing to bet it needs the recent fixes I sent to Dave Miller
for the newer OBP's. There's no kernel images with that fix yet, but one
is coming soon.

The v210 is a IIIi cpu, and it requires a newer PCI controller driver
that Dave has been working on lately. Maybe we'll get it working soon.

What email list / development place do these type of changes take place (linux kernel mailing list?)
I'd like to wrap my head around the issue personally if possible.
