New glibc and sysvinit (WARNING)


I've just uploaded a new glibc (2.0.105) and a sysvinit 2.76 to go
along with it.

Be careful when upgrading sysvinit - it will overwrite /etc/init.d/rcS.

In the disk image, I have this line at the top of /etc/init.d/rcS:

/sbin/insmod-a.out -f /lib/modules/misc/fpem.o
You'll need to re-add it, or the floating point emulator will not load
during boot, and you'll be stuck.

I'm going to to take a look at the new open-source FP emulator (and
probably package it).  I'll also try to patch the kernel so that it
can ignore FP errors, as I previously discussed.
