Alliance Semiconductor sells the necessary cache chips for low prices
(AS7C256 or AS7C1024). Get a PDF datasheet from their web site for a
list of distributors; there were a few in Germany, anyway. There is a
jumper on the motherboard to select either 15ns or 20ns cache speed.
However, somebody claimed on USENET that the 15ns 128Kx8 Alliance part
would only work reliably at the 20ns setting, so you might consider
buying either 12ns or 15ns parts to run at 15ns or 20ns, respectively.


On another subject: this is probably a stupid question, but what is the
libc6 vs. libc6.1 issue? I thought that ELF shared libraries with the
same major version number were supposed to be backward compatible. Could 
someone enlighten me as to what I'm missing? My knowledge of Linux/Alpha 
is currently limited; hopefully this will change when I get my AXPpci33
running properly.
