               I downloaded the latest binaries off the FTP site.  
          Thanks again to all involved - you know who you are  8-)
          
               On to the next problem.
          
               Here's a strange one...
          
               Mike and I are trying to compile the kernel before the 
          Christmas break here.  So I tried it yesterday and got some 
          linking errors.  Here's a sample:
          
     mips-linuxelf-ld  -r -o kernel.o ksyms.o sched.o dma.o fork.o 
exec_domain.o 
     panic.o printk.o sys.o module.o exit.o signal.o itimer.o info.o time.o 
     softirq.o resource.o
     signal.o(.text+0x3f4): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     signal.o(.text+0x62c): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     itimer.o(.text+0x1e8): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     itimer.o(.text+0x208): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     itimer.o(.text+0x274): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text

     itimer.o(.text+0x404): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     itimer.o(.text+0x634): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     resource.o(.text+0x230): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     resource.o(.text+0x300): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     resource.o(.text+0x3c4): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     resource.o(.text+0x44c): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_GOT16 .text
     make[1]: *** [kernel.o] Error 1
     make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/linux-1.3.39/kernel'
     make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2
          
               Any ideas anyone?   We're expecting a storm tonight and 
          tomorrow, so we might not be in 'till Thursday - lots of 
          snow!
          
               Anyhow, is it something to do with environment 
          variables configuring the 'ld' tool with object file types?  
          I've been reading the GNU manual on ld, but haven't found 
          anything definite yet.  Could it be the segment page size is 
          wrong? 
          
               Thanks in advance.  
          
                                                       Baffled
