Qube 2.4.8 kernel messes up exit status

I noticed more people are trying te get the Qube2 running. 

I linked the linux-mips.sourceforge.net drop in tree in the linux-2.4.8 tree 
and succesfully compiled a bootable kernel (after fixing some minor errors). 
For some reason all processes return the same exit status: 268606192. 

Is there something wrong in de kernel source, or can this be caused by 
building with the wrong tools. I cross-compiled with 
egcs-mipsel-linux-1.1.2-4.i386.rpm from 
ftp://ftp.linux.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips/crossdev/i386-linux/mipsel-linux .
Are people using other cross-compilers that are more native to debian? How 
can I get it?

Another problem I'm having is that the tulip network driver crashes when you 
de a ifconfig with the device. That's why I only compiled the 3com driver in.

Besides the exit status (which makes it sort of unusable) and the crashing 
tulip driver, everything works well.
Below a capture-file illustrating the problems.
