with the kind help of Karel van Houten I've been able to get a R4400SC CPU
card, converting my DS5000/240 into a DS5000/260 :-).
This moves me into a position to check wether our R3000 patches still work on
machines, but, unfortunately, they do not :-(. linux-2.1.121-pre2, on which I am
currently working, dies shortly after lauching sash and printing "Stand-al" with
different interesting error messages.
To check what is broken, either my brain or my DECstation, I handcrafted a
tree will all the neccessary DECstation changes but leaving out all the R3000
patches and guess what, this one works :-/. That means we can add a DECstation
DECstations-going-single-user-list but I have to reiterate all R3000 patches,
might take a while.
Just wanted to let you know.
