Well, I wish it would but the kernel dies before executing /bin/sh :-(. Anyway,
DECstation-Linux-2.1.99 with a few minor enhancements is going to be released
The DECsystem 5100 is even less documented than the other DECstations. Stu Allen
<email@example.com> has managed to bring the periodic interrupts to work on
DS5100 and I have tried to support 5100 machines as far as possible.
Radim, when 2.1.99 is out, please give it a try and send me the results. If you
further questions feel free to ask me.
