They've actually stopped building fc2 updates for ppc now,
My system is Lite5200 with DENX Embedded Linux running on it.I want to connect USB mass storage devices to my computer's USB port.But I found there is no driver in kernel.(when I use 'make xconfig' the USB mass storage devices driver is in grey).How can I download/install the driver and active my USB disk?

the problem occured.
I have enabled USB support with 'make xconfig'. The reports are as follows:

Later, when the computer starts, if ifup eth0 doesn't work, can you
bring the interface up manually using ifconfig ?

What kernel is this?

Hmm, post lscpi in your next post (only to fedora-ppc list). What
does /proc/cpuinfo report ? (this is just for my curiosity)

i sucked the ppc-devel-tree to my hd, set up a NFS server for the downloaded
files and burned boot.iso from the dir "mac". The boot cd booted but it
found no network device.
all i know i took from the HOWTO at
I couldn't by all efforts find more about this topic in the net...
If i burn the FC3 PPC development tree on an DVD, boot with a CD and select
"CD-ROM" as Installation method, anaconda tells me that it didn't find a FC
CD that fits to my boot CD. That's allready a bit more than i got with my
first try (DVD without ".disc-info", without "SRPMS" and named other than
"FC-3 ppc"). There it said that it didn'T find a FC CD. my second DVD should
be OK, the only dir that didn't fit onto the dvd was "debug" but i read in
the howto, that i don't need
it. so what's wrong?
I also tried to get help at another maillist:

That's what happens to me if i try to install on the PowerMacG3 (350MHz),
but with the bmac driver. alt Alt+F4 it says:
<7> divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
<6> eth0: BMAC+ at 00:05:02:61:a3:51
so i guess anaconda could load the driver. but it doesn't go further then.
It just keeps me asking to select a driver...
Does anybody have experience with this topic and could give me a hint? Or
can anybody tell me what to do or where it's documented how i can install
FC-3 on Macs? I have a PowerMac G3 (350MHz) and it's really important that i
install fedora there...
Thanks in advance

I'm looking somewhat puzzled at a G5, sitting at the firmware prompt,
that refuses to run yaboot or ofwboot.elf (both elf-32 executables, they
hang after printing Loading ELF) but happily loads/runs ofwboot.xcf and
tbxi (both xcoff executables).
I'm guessing that there is something in the ELF that it doesn't like :-/
I need the proper XF86Config info for a first gen iMac.
I used the tool Dan Burcaw wrote, but it did not create correct config

The HorizSync and VertRefresh are clearly not correct - well, HorizSync
might be but startx complains at VertRefresh.
I'm tempted to just invert the 75-60 but I'd rather get a confirmed
This is a first gen iMac running FC2 yum updated from YDL 3 - but the
YDL install was an extremely lite install (no X) for the purpose of
making such update/install easier. So I don't have an existing XF86
config file for it.
Thanks in advance,

Installed a minimal YDL 3.0
Removed a bunch of packes.
Tried yum updating to ppc FC3T2 on
Didn't want to do do it - looked like there was stuff there that wanted
different glibc than what it the repo had.
Tried updating to FC2
What's the best way to do this?
