Hi James,

I've had a Powermac G4 AGP for about a week and both Slackintosh 12.0 and
now current have consistently worked very well without problems so far except
for a kernel panic bug that's triggered by my custom builds of the 2.6.24.5 and
2.6.25 kernels and some packages that still need to be updated.

Maybe you can post a short log of the messages you get when booting the
2.6.21.5 kernel. You may also try to install and/or build a newer kernel and
see it that solves your boot issues.
