I have 2.4.6-pre3 running. Machine is a PowerMac clone with a G3 CPU.
It gets loads of bogus interrupts (known problem with this machine),
but otherwise runs fine (that is, for the time being).

Been there, done that. Just works.
Would 2.4.6-pre1 be a better test ? I can dig into that if you want.

Places change, faces change. Life is so very strange.
