In principle, Linux/MIPS runs on the Maxine, but there is currently no
keyboard/mouse driver for the Personal DECstation series and there is
some kernel bug, which causes the Debian installer to hang the kernel,
but _only_ on a Maxine. This bug does not appear on any other type
of DECstation. We have up to now not been able to find out what
exactly triggers this kernel bug.
