:we don't have a spare Indy to play with, but have a
:spare Challenge S (single processor R5000)
:I was wondering if you thing this machine is possible, it would be
:used with a serial console (no X), for testing ;)
If you feel up to the challenge, sure, please go ahead.
There may be a few assumptions in the current code which detects
the newport graphics console that this testing may uncover. If
you can fix this so it won't be Indy dependent, we win one more
possible platform !
Moreover, since a challenge-S doesn't have graphics anyway
Linux which is fast and compact may even outperform IRIX
on some benchmarks.
I would suggest that:
1) You join the mailing list:
Body: subscribe linux email@example.com
if you have questions, ask...
2) If you have Challenge-S patches, e-mail them to the list
and we can check that they didn't break anything and
merge them into the source tree.
