With the trouble I had with mc, I'm going to stick with slink until I can
start building packages. Then I can keep the library skew under control.

I'm not sure what is wrong, but since I can ftp from the Intel machine, I
don't need to use the CD for transfers.

I was able to resolve it by installing the mc from slink (and its
I have enough tools installed to try to build a kernel. I have the
upstream source for 2.2.7 (I never build from a Debian package), but when
I try to build it I get:
rm -f kernel.o
ld -m elf64_sparc -r -o kernel.o signal.o ksyms.o sched.o dma.o fork.o exec_domain.o panic.o printk.o sys.o module.o exit.o itimer.o info.o time.o softirq.o resource.o sysctl.o acct.o capability.o kmod.o
ld: cannot open linker script file ldscripts/elf64_sparc.xr: No such file or directory
make: *** [kernel.o] Error 1
but /usr/lib/ldscripts/elf64_sparc.xr _does_ exist.
Do I have a broken ld, or what?
