As you have a R5000 machine it cant be that CPU dependent as
i have a R4400 250Mhz machine.
The development is a little on hold here too as the Current Kernel CVS
doesnt run on ANY of my platforms - On Decstation it boots but i cant
login :( and on Indigo2 it simply crashes :( On decstation i am currently
running 2.3.21 which crashes for me twice a day or something while compiling.
Processor: 250Mhz R4400, with FPU
GFX: Solid Impact
