You can get it to boot if you check out a version of September 12 or
earlier. After that, it seems to me that PPC support has been dropped at
vger (or at least at its cvs.on.openprojects mirror). If you want a
later 2.3.xx kernel that boots and runs OK, get Paul Mackerras'
pmac-devel kernel by rsync. It is at 2.3.22, but anything later looks
pretty dangerous to me, and the recent (2.3.26 or later)
kernels don't boot.
