Y-HPC Source Code

You should be able  to build a ppc64 kernel from standard kernel 
I was able to successfully compile the 2.6.9 kernel (no patches) for a 
XServe 2.0GHz G5.  Previous kernels crashed on boot up for this 
I did this using a standard copy of YDL 4.0 (I haven't tried from 
3.0.1, but should be pretty much the same assuming it's got a G5 
capable copy of yaboot), and cross tool (http://kegel.com/crosstool/)

Once you've gotten cross tool, run demo_ppc970.sh and add the created 
tool chain bin to your PATH
Then you can build the kernel with

make  ARCH=ppc64 CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu-

Remember to copy in arch/ppc64/configs/g5_defconfig to .config in the 
kernel source directory.
