1) go to: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/
2) see yourself: no talkback enabled build for linux ppc is aviable

Ok, there are more Linux-x86 users than ppc users..
But since i'm running Linux on PPC only, it's impossible for me to send
Talkback-data..

I think for ppc, we don't need 2 builds, one with and one without talkback.. one
Build with talkback enabled would be good enough (users wich don't want to send
talkback data can turn it of..)

and it's not a supported platorm.

ok, 

but a question: why?

are there licensing problems, no time (not enough potentiell users) or has the
talkback software problems with this plattform?

the software isn't there, there's no license for it, there's no market for it,
netscape isn't investing large gobs of anything into talkback and when it does
invest it's for large markets where netscape7+ and other commercial mozilla
derivatives are shipped (which currently does not include linuxppc)

note that releasing products with talkback isn't free, it requires a storage
investment for all of the symbols, especially if they're nightlies, but even if
you just keep symbols for all of the releases.

if you're interested in tracking down problems on LinuxPPC, build debug or
--enable-optimize="-O2 -g" --disable-debug, track down the problem as best you
can and file/find a bug.
