I'd like to mention that due to popular demand (Some commercial embedded
projects just didn't choose Linux/MIPS because there was no "stable"
release 2.0 available) I'm working on backporting most of the MIPS
stuff implemented for 2.1.x back to 2.0.30+.  I hope to get it stable
this week, at least that is the deadline I'm imposing on myself ...
That should also give you DECstation people some slowly moving source
base to start from.

Could you guys tell me, in which routine the kernel actually died?  It
might be that I can fix things very easily.

Subscription is handled manually be me and a couple of other people.
Is it possible that you tried to subscribe to
That's a Majordomo mailing list, but nobody is using that list.  The
only actually active mailing lists are:

  -, (for subscription send mail to or me.
  -  (for subscription send mail to
    This list is primarily oriented towards _development_ of Linux for SGI
    machines but also currently has the main traffic.

That move was back in '95, I can not imagine that that is the problem.
Whatever, Fritz, if you'd like me to (re-)subscribe you to linux-mips,
please drop me a mail.
