What are the advantages each of the kernels (2.4 and 2.6) have over each other for the PPC platform? All I know so far is the brightness control on my powerbook doesn't work under 2.6, but is was suggested that is may under 2.4. I'm going to try the latest 2.4 kernel now, but would still like to see which would be best for what I have.

Take the 2.6 kernel as there is a lot of improved development work done.

The backlight problem could cause from the nvidia graphics card, wherefore no driver exist.
