LinuxPPC: Debian supports Pegasos II from kernel version 2.4.22-6 on
The official Debian PowerPC kernel supports not only the Pegasos I but also the Pegasos II now. It is a V 2.4.22 kernel with back ported security fixes.

The version 2.4.22-8 works so far, but voodoo fbdev is not integrated yet, the radeonfb should work. There is also an image available for a network install. That one does not work with Voodoo gfx cards yet - Radeons should work without problems.

Further information is available at the Pegasos Linux forum. (snx) (Translation: (ub)
