Thanks for your report. Do you have tested your machines with different linux distributions?
These old 604e
based machines, as you can read in Release Notes 2.6
, are now untested
i.e. there is a binary compatibility but no one tested it. We don't have anymore rs6k 32bit machines, and our testers are disappeared. The latest positive feedback was about CRUX PPC release 2.4.
We received a couple of donation proposals... sad to say but only proposals.
I'm sorry but, from the next CRUX PPC release, we'll be obliged to definitely remove official support altough these still are nice machines.
