Hey All,

PPC1  is rebuilt and back in use
it is now running FC5 it has 
mock-0.6-4.fc5
yum-2.6.1-0.fc5

hopefully  this will speed up chroot creation a little.  but most importantly  
it should be using the minimal buildroot now.

over the weekend im going to upgrade ppc2 and 3,  and im going to attempt the 
hammers also.  we dont have serial console access to the bios on the hammers 
so im going to try them  by  putting the installer kernel and initrd in /boot  
and booting from that.  It will mean  that we will have one shot at the 
install.  If it fails  that builder will be out only a couple of days,  there 
is someone at the colo all week.  We are also going to have them see if we 
can get access to the bios over serial console.
