well, all the modules are correctly loaded at the boot with standard
kernel, but i'm trying to compile another one optimized for my tibook.

but...why not add in the universe a couple of kernel-images optimized
for laptop G3 and G4?

for example a kernel for ibook/tibook G4 with the support
of /proc/cpufreq and without the unnecessary modules (scsi for example)

another problem that i think important:

recompile a kernel with make-kpkg in dabian way
install it with dpkg -i
reboot and choose "Old" as kernel image.

paff!! kernel panik!  

the problem is that /etc/yaboot.conf there is a line in "old" room like


but in /boot there is a link


so during the boot the kernel cannof found the correct image and crash.
I hope that someone can fix it quickly
