| Yes, it is possible to compile a kernel on PPC machine.
Yes, you are missing something 🙂
I recommend the following:
– Get on the debian-ppc mailing list
– Get the Debian source for 2.4.10
– Get and apply the PPC patch
– Get and apply the XFS patch while we’re patching 😉
Now try your normal kernel building techniques. I hope on Debian you are building kernels with make-kpkg, this is a big grief relief.
