will RS/6000 be supported in FC4? rawhide's changelog from 20050514 say
"Enable CONFIG_ISA on ppc32 to make the RS/6000 user happy" in kernel
package and AFAIK anaconda has some support for PReP machines (changelog
in anaconda 2005-Apr-26 talk about PReP in iSeries).
I have downloades FC4T3 and when I try to boot 1st CD, the host freeze
and in led display show F4D ('Bit-map file read into memory, start
CD1/images/README say "Images for installing on an iSeries machine can
be found in the ppc/iSeries directory." but ppc/iSeries does not exist
I'm testing with RS/6000 7043-240 (UP) processor is ppc604e (pSeries
PReP, not CHRP). It is running linux today.
