We have now a working dpkg. So normal install with dpkg -i or with dselect.

The whole xfree stuff works. Possible a configuration problem.

Yeh, notice this also. We must append the /etc/devinfo.

I have one. Testing it now (booting, ldd bins, ...). I need it also
for tervola; let me do some test and i put it out (only tarball, no
bootfloppys or something else).
If you get the new stuff, please report any problems here or to me. I'm not
sure if the bins from April are correct working. And install only the
new slang-1.xxx to detect old bins with slang0.99.39.
