The latest kernel available from Debian does work fine on my Montvale rx2660.
However, I cannot boot my McKinley zx6000 with it. It will MCA really early in
the boot process.

I got working 3.2.0 kernel after some work. Without recompilation.
HP rx4640. That was 2 years ago. Server switched off for cost saving :(
Started to install toolchain for compilation, but not finished.
Internal disks were too small, some 36 gb i think.
It seems that i have to boot my server, and try again, as there is some
light in end of tunnel. I was hoping to get LXC working on ia64 some
