Default How to compile kernel for PowerPC Fedora?

Hello all,

I'm trying to compile a kernel for FC5/6 on a PowerPC computer (actually, a PS3) so that I can add a device driver (pl2303) that is part of the kernel source but was not activated as a module.

When I follow the "Fedora way" instructions, the "yum install fedora-rpmdevtools unifdef" command fails. The unifdef package downloads OK, but fedora-rpmdevtools does not. If I run this command on an i386 install of FC6, it works fine. It doesn't work on my PowerPC Fedora,
though. The "make install" command doesn't work, either.

Does the PowerPC install of Fedora Core 6 not work the same as the i386 install with your instructions? Is there a different way to compile a kernel for Power PC? My system doesn't use grub nor yaboot; I only have kboot as the boot manager.

Thanks for your help!
Tom
