News & Announcements

Astro and Elroy docs released
Thanks to many people at Hewlett Packard, we now have documentation on the Astro and Elroy devices found in some of the newer PA-RISC machines, such as the C3000 and J5000. These documents have been converted to PostScript and are linked from documentation
NFS working
Martin Petersen posted an NFS-Root howto on the list. If you use NFS root, then you don't need to use an initial ramdisk. This exercises quite a lot of the kernel, including the TCP/IP layer and the ethernet driver.

This Week's CVS Activity

The ELF toolchain has received some updates this week. Sammy contributed initial support for Linux/PARISC ELF32. Matthew contributed some build fixes for HP/UX and David H-D contributed Debian and Red Hat build support for x86.
John continued his low-level memory-management work by enabling the trapping of accidental user pointer dereferences.
Grant committed a bug-fix for card-mode DINOs.
