Does it run without any problems? What kernel (with what patches?) are you
running. I'm having troubles running our R4600-Indy:

- Perl is seg-faulting (especially when a perl-script is calling another)
- bind9 hangs after a few days
- occasionally the box just stalls and returns to the bootprom
- sometimes it just dies and we have to power-cycle it

I'm using kernel-image-2.4.5 from debian but we've had these problems
all through 2.4.x.

Would be nice to hear if anyone has managed to get 2.4.x running on
an R4600 without problems. R4000 and R5000 seems to be ok according to this
list...

Regards

Raoul
