Linux World Expo

Look for Thomas Marteau and other members of ESIEE www.pateam.org at Linux Expo in Paris. They will be showing off PA RISC Linux en francais!
Matthew Wilcox has completed the 2.4.0 kernel merge. Head of the tree is now linux_2.4.0 and is marked with the LINUS_240_DEVEL tag.
More work on the A500 from Richard Hirst. Fixes in sys32_select() that make 'reboot', and 'init 6' function correctly.
First attempt at getting the A500 working SMP. The kernel boots but kswapd dies.
New Web Site goes live.
Paul Bame created a debian package of palo.
Thanks to Dann Frazier at HP the PA-RISC Linux Bug Tracking System is ready to roll. Please report your bugs to http://bugs.parisc-linux.org (The BTS was deprecated/abandoned in 2003 - ggg)
Apache now works on 64bit as a result of more work by Paul Bame on the syscall wrappers.
