Add CHRP Based PPC Support Please!

Post by fraterm » Wed Jun 02, 2004 8:44 pm

This is actually a feature needed in gentoo the distribution itself... but a great reason for my evaluation of partimage as a tool to use in my daily work was that it promises some level of PPC support.

Sadly though it does not function as expected on older CHRP F50/B50 IBM Pseries hardware. This is a problem with certain levels of kernel/optimization and support that are not supported on this class of machine. I'd like to light a fire under anyone interested in adding this feature to the partimage distribution cdrom for powerpc. And indeed would like to assist in whatever way I can to help it happen.
