The way I set that up is still young...and has some issues (most of
which should be fixed by the ppc && ppc64 -> powerpc merge). From what I
have tested, it does work perfectly fine with 6.8.2...I haven't run into
any issues. I maintain that profile so if there are issues please take
them off this list...feel free to send them to ppc64 at or open
a bug at and assign it to the ppc64 group. I'll see it
either way.
