Hello

I tried to run the pre-compiled vmlinux-indy-2.2.1-990226 kernel
on a SGI Indy (R4600 Rev. 00002020 processor with PROMLIB SGI ARCS 
Ver. 1 Rev. 10) but it has not worked (the INIT process does not 
start). I compiled its source locally, but it did not work either 
(same problem). However, the pre-compiled vmlinux-indy-sound-2.2.1-990526  
runs perfectly.

1. What is the difference between vmlinux-indy-2.2.1-990226 and
vmlinux-indy-sound-2.2.1-990526?

2. Where can I find the sources of vmlinux-indy-sound-2.2.1-990526?
Or, is there any patch to upgrade from 2.2.1-990226 to it? I looked 
at ftp.linux.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/src/kernel/v2.2, but it is empty.
Also, ftp.linux.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/test contains only the
sources of 2.2.1-990226.

I need the sources of a working kernel in order to introduce some
instrumentation, necessary for my research. So, I really would 
appreciate any help regarding this. Thanks in advance.

Regards
Eliseu M. C. Filho
