I don't dare to do that ..... yet ;)

Now i have tried again and i removed libc6 and libc6-dev, but i had
to manually link libc.so.6.1 -> libc.so.6 (and ld.so) as gcc is linked
against that. we will see if it can compile a kernel before i finnish
this message ..... :)

i am more that willing to test anything. i feel much more 'alive', when i
can again 'play around' with not-so-stable-things :)
Of course i have my limitations in knowing the UN*X intenals, but i'll learn
more every day.

I think so, but now i am waiting to see, if i can compile zsh and kernel,
before i actually send this message as hello.c is compiling/working just fine
and drink couple more cups of coffee :)
Coffee is done, but i am still waiting results from compiler
This Alpha @ 166Mhz w/ 256cache is slow, but i love it already :)
Anybody knows anything about ISA-cards with DMA/IRQ? (namely sound)
I am getting 'IRQ/DMA timeout' complains vitually in any combination
zsh done -> seems to work
gets linked against ld.so.1 thought and won't link without it :(
And while i remember - i had to link /lib/libbfd.so.220.127.116.11 as
libbfd.so.18.104.22.168 too to get things working
And holy smoke! it compiled, even booted, but there is something
srong with something like 'utsname' in the very begining of the
compile, so 'uname -a' doesn't look quite right. maybe i am missing
something needed still. will dig deeper to it ...
