*snicker* Yeah, I was hoping someone else would do it too ;)

Fine, the console seems solid now. I left it going for over 17 hours doing
ls -lR in 6 VC's (load 6+ poor thing) and to Ralfs bitter disappointment
nothing happened ;) I haven't had a kernel panic since then... (touch wood).
I have had some wierd problems with "ri exception in delay slot" which
seems to come and go though. I spoke to Ralf yesterday and he says he's
fixed some nasty bugs over the weekend and will clean up his 98 tree for
release RSN (yeah - we've heard that before right :)

On another note: I fished out a set of X11R5 sources (they still have the
mips hardware support) and I'll have a look see. Maybe I can get X11 for
the g364 pretty soon ...

Ciao
