Thanks again Christoph,
Today I had successfuly compiled a new kernel
for RS/6000 B50. I found a patch for ppc in
FTP. This patch worked for the
original linux kernel 2.4.18 from ftp.kernel.org
Now I'm running the newest kernel!

Where do you boot from?
Do you use yaboot?
How have you compiled the kernel? Use 'make dep && make clean &&
modules && make vmlinux && make modules_install' to compile your
You cannot boot a compressed kernel image (like on i386, zImage, etc...)
Is it possible that the system continues booting after the message
"Elf32 kernel loaded" but has no video support?
Well, just guessing ;)
