Update repository to 2.4.30

I've applied the 2.4.30 kernel patch to the repository. CVS tag for 2.4.30 is linux-2_4_30. I'll be applying 2.4.31 and 2.4.32 over the next week (as my time permits).

New miBoot ISO image fixes CDROM access on PowerBooks

Unfortunately we provided a non-working miBoot ISO image regarding CD-based installations of Debian Sarge.
As of today there is a fixed miBoot ISO image available that was successfully used to install Debian Sarge 3.1r1 on a PowerBook 1400.
As always read the corresponding release notes since it contains invaluable information about the installation process.
Please join the mailing list and report your results. Good luck!

BitKeeper 2.4.28 kernel source tree on CVS

The support request on SF for importing the BitKeeper archive file was fulfilled.
According to the SF 2nd level support the new CVS module will not be visible for anonymous (read-only) CVS access until a change is made to the CVS (by one of us that got CVS write access).

I will checkin all patches that I currently have on the weekend (9-11 Dec).

Have a nice weekend

Debian kernel source 2.4.27-10 (+nubus) available on CVS

We are currently moving off from Bitkeeper.
As a first step Debian's kernel source tree including NuBus patches was put on CVS tonight.

The CVS module name is debian-linux-2.4.27-nubus.
Don't get confused by another CVS module called linux-nubus.
This seems to be an fairly old kernel source tree.

See CVS project page [1] for access.

I will try to gather all patches and put them into CVS on the weekend (9-11 Dec).... read more
