I fixed the problems with Sinix by replacing it with Linux on my RM200 :-)
The box was borrowed by SNI and so I dare to hope that we'll also get other
SNI MIPS machines from them to put Linux on them.


(Are you shure that the MX400 has a MIPS processor?  That's would be the
third processor series (NS32000, i386, MIPS) that the use for the MX series.
Yuck.  But otherwise you're right with your opinion about SINIX.  I sometimes
have to use an ancient MX2 and no doubt - most horrible UNIX ever.  A short

resolver fails, the machine needs proxy ARP, telnetd and rlogind crash ...
Yes, they dared to sell it ...)
