: the demand to move to the 1.3 kernel seems to increase.
: There are quite a few people on the list asking for this,
: and I must admit that it would have several advantages.
I'd love to be able to just run 1.3.x out of the box :-).
: However, I'd like to see user code running on all current
: targets, that is the Pica, Magnum, Olivetti and RPC44 boxes
: before moving over to 1.3.
I'm happy with where I'm at with the RPC44 box that if it didn't run
user code, I wouldn't complain much.
: I believe that if we change before having all targets
: more or less at the same state we would produce more
: problems than needed. It might even happen that people are
: working on different kernel releases, which is certainly
: no good idea.
This is a valid concern. I'm not sure why I can't get past the kernel
messages phase of the boot, but I'm not overly worried about it.
: - add RPC44 support to Milo and kernel
OK. I'll try to get a set of diffs against the 126.96.36.199 kernel that
I've been using as a base, and we can iterate on them.
: - check user code on all systems (at least /bin/bash should work)
As an aside: What's the easiest way to check this? Can I just put
/bin/bash on a msdos formatted floppy?
