Hello !

i would like to know: was anybody was able to install linux
hppa on HP workstation c8000 ? it would have the pa8900 cpu
and the zx1 chipset and the ATI FireGL T1 AGP video card.

in the http://www.pateam.org/list.html

there may be a typo error ...  it is running to the prompt with serial
console ?? there is an orange "X" i don't know (not red) ??....

pa8800/pa8900 doesn't really work at the moment. It randomly
segfaults. As it is said, these issues are being worked on, but right
now we cannot claim that pa8800/pa8900 work, hence the orange 'X': it
doesn't really work, yet it does boot ;)
