Actually, most of the current packages went without much problem (gee, I love 
Linux).  Others were just intergrating patches with the RedHat sources.

I'm sure with the remaining packages there is going to be quite a bit of 
porting required.  I seems that there is a lot of work done already on the
kernel and modutilies (I seen an achieve fom them, can not remember where
right now). Engineering current MIPS patches in the RedHat sources is really
going to take some time.

We do have one problem, our current machine is on loan to us and we have to
deliver it back in working condition *smile* so we are limited on 
some of the kernel work we can do.

If anybody as any patches to the some of the packages that have not been
completed yet, just let me know and I'll see if we can get a RPM build.
Hopefully I'll be able to contrib a few patches of my own.

Thanks!
