Strange behaviour after cross-compiling
I cross-compiled glibc and the Hurd and installed them over Marcus'
freeX Hurd distribution. Strange behaviour results:
1. gnumach from CVS can't do color display (that's okay, but
I'd like to know how the freeX gnumach.gz was generated!).
2. passwords are displayed on screen; every command is
also echoed after being submitted.
3. commands can be used as usual (e.g. ls works etc...),
but as soon as non-dumb screen capabilities are needed
(including pipes!), I get the following error message:
bash [36: 1] tcsetattr: (ipc/mig) server type check failure
The error is not only from bash, but from other programs as well,
ex/vi: Error: tcsetattr: (ipc/mig) server type check failure
Every time this error occurs, the program is stopped by bash
and resuming it with 'fg' results in the same error again.
I tried to set TERM from mach-color to dumb, but the error
What's going on?
P.S.: I'm running the Hurd on a ufs (FreeBSD ffs) partition
mounted with ufs.static.

Murphy's Law fails only when you try to demonstrate it, and thus succeeds.
