Just installed Ubuntu Feisty on my Pegasos II, with Peter Czanik's kernel (2.6.20-15-powerpc). It is working fine except one thing: it seems, that the asfs file system is broken. Every stuff gets a fatal exception when I try to open a file from an ASFS partition.
Is there any solution for this? Is it a known problem of this kernel, or only this kernel build is broken?
ASFS support is practically unmaintained, I'm surprised it's even in the Ubuntu kernel still. There were some VFS changes which were fixed, but compiling fine isn't the same as working fine.
What it needs, I think, is fixing from scratch and submitted to mainline via the Linux filesystem guys.
