AlphaCore got me...
Yes, AlphaCore has me again. I reinstalled my DS10, after MikeBarnes sent me some memory. Memory is bad, so I had to buy some more on ebay. However, finally I got the machine up'n'running and now I'm reporting bugs, patching for alpha, waiting for gcc, binutils, glibc and so on to produce good rpms.
You may know, gcc takes very long to compile on a reasonable fast (x86-based) machine... It takes much longer on our good ol' Alphas.
I tried to get some more Alphas via ebay and old friends. But buying 'em is very expensive and my friends sold 'em already... So if you have some fast DS20e, ES40 or such a nice baby around that you don't use. Let me know. It would be a pleasure for me to reinstall it and use it for compiling...
PS: Compaq/HP did you hear me? You for sure have some machines around that you could hand out for such a project!
