Re: ls -l doesn't segfault...


I've been playing with that as well - I built a fsck for
Debian Linux 68k that doesn't crash - using very similar

I used a patched up floatlib.c that I got somewhere - some
parts of some worked and some parts of others. I built both
a static library and a dynamic library, and used the static
library for fcsk.

It almost seems to me that if we are to run linux on the
LC040 machines, it is going to become an entirely sepatrate
distribution, since nearly every program that uses floating
point numbers will have to be rebuilt...

Oh yes, this will seem like a dumb question - which package
are those basic filesystem commands in? (ls,rm,cd)
