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 don't see it still ...

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. as 
libbfd.so. 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 ...
