Re: different packages compared to intel?

No need to CC to me (or the list) anymore - I am subscribed now.

I am just Debianing for about 2 days now, but I really started liking
it. I am still a little confused about dselect, but "apt-get install"
works fine - and even if I have to figure out many things that are
different from my good old SuSE it is going to be "learning-fun"
BTW - if you have any short RTFM-Links on how to do a new kernel on
debian/sparc (as I found a SparcStation20 with two processors on campus
(- is smp supported for sparcs?)) send them by PM... ;)

What is that a replacement for? binutils? What about bin86?

Those packages are far more than a minimalistic install anyway...
