The wheels of progress continue to roll.

Currently hacking on and specifically creating a ppc version of the software. I'm hoping I can obtain an artic ii ppc pda board that has been demoed at linuxworld from time to time. Ideally I'd love to run oe on that. But we'll see how it goes...

Posted the initial ppc toolchain oe files yesterday. In user space I have zlib, ipkg, glibc 2.3.2 building. Hope to move onto busybox and the kernel by Monday.

Happy New Year!

Again yet another ice age has passed so time for another entry. continues to go well. While 2.4.13 is the currently kernel version we are on, we're more frozen for the second so we can maximize our help for SuSE and their efforts.

Now which box should I bring up next? ... the big black one or that tiny little grey one ... hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Gotta tooth yanked today ... happy happy joy joy

My journey as a kernel hacker wanna-be continues. I now maintain the IBM bit keeper repository for IBM PowerPC hardware. Take a gander at my brand spankin' new web page at

I just recently got the Power3 44P Model 170 running Linux. This was to the 2.3.99-pre9 kernel. Well this week I resolve to get us up to the 2.4.0-test5 kernel.....
