I'm building the GNU toolchain for a= i386 platform, specifically
, with my host machine being PIII(i686)
As far as I know, I have to first build binutils, then the
bootstrap= gcc and then glibc.
My binutils is successfully installed. Fo= r my bootsrap compiler
my ./configure is successfull with the following par= ameters
--without-headers --with-newlib --enable-languages=c
However, Im getting erros while "make" ing .
I pe= rsonally think that its a version mismatch problem bretween
gcc, binu= tis and glibc.
I'e been googling for the past two days and have tried= with lots
of different versions.
Has anyone actually compiled= a GNU toolchain for an i386 paltform?
If so, would you guys mind telling m= e the EXACT versions and patches
for gcc, glibc and binutils?
I have a copy of partecs live demo CD containing the morphix flavor of
linux. It is fine, fast and all that, but am unable to connect to the net
from the CD.
the pppoe mechanism detects the eth. I have entered the username -
username@linux since I have pacenet - and password, but nothing happens. I
cannot surf the net using the Live CD.
There are several entries in my ldap tree.
A number of these have the password in cleartext format and I would like to
change it to md5 or something else. Unfortunately, its a time consuming
process to do it manually for each and every account.
Is there a more efficient way to do it?

Here you require the qmail-monitor tool which is available

The LFY Suse 9.1 LiveCD refused to boot in any of my systems. Worse, I
couldn't even look at the contents since my CDROMs refused to recognise the
The issue here is the shoddy quality control while making the LFY CDs
rather than anything to do with Suse itself. This is attested to by the no
of complaints on the LFY forums.
So, yes, if someone has a working Suse 9.1 Live CD then I'll be glad to get
a copy and try it out.

My personal experience with Suse9.1 Live has been bad. I've tried the copy that
came with the current issue of LFY on five different systems with varying configs
(P3, P4, Celeron & AthlonXP). Not once did it boot up properly. RK tried it on
three different systems. He had the same experience.

Sending this again since it somehow got merged with some previous mail in
the list and didn't appear in the TOC of mails.
I have finally managed to download the FlashMob RC4 iso. I have played
around with it a little bit and here are the results.
Basic requirement is 200 MB of Free RAM after booting (Morphix-based).
I ran a test on a PII 300MHz with 128MB RAM. I have PCQLinux2004 installed
on this machine and it runs like a charm. I could boot Linux and run the
software. It ran the small benchmark giving me 0.1 GFLOPS but it didn't run
the big benchmark citing insufficient memory.
Next I ran it on a PIV 1.8GHz 512MB RAM in standalone mode. It ran great,
and the small benchmark gave me a result of 0.5 GFLOPS and the big
benchmark gave me 1.04 GFLOPS.
Third test was to run it on my Compaq Laptop PIV 2.3GHz 512MB RAM in
standalone mode. For some reason the SpeedStep technology kicks in and runs
the CPU only at 1.6GHz. This happens with Knoppix 3.3 also. I still haven't
tried it out with Suse 9.1 LiveCD. Anyway, the benchmarks ran but gave me
pathetic results of 0.2 GFLOPS and 0.4 GFLOPS. I have no idea why. I
haven't tried to analyse it yet.
Fourth test was to run the server on my Laptop and the PIV as a compute
node. Both nodes were detected. In this case, I got an insufficient memory
error (don't know for which node, but I suspect my laptop). The benchmark
ran and gave me bad results again with the big benchmark just yielding 0.8
In the fift test, I used another PIV 1.8GHz 512MB desktop as the server and
similar configuration for the compute node. No errors this time and the
benchmarks ran great giving me 0.5 GFLOPS and 1.8GFLOPS for the small and
big benchmarks using 2 nodes.
Do you think we can try this out on a larger scale now ? We can discuss
this in the meet (when we meet :-)).
This is to remind (and update) you of the meet on this coming sunday
at IIT KReSIT, Mumbai at 4pm. You may get the details of KReSIT and
the available modes of transport to reach KReSIT at
The topics to be disscused are as follows.
1. BLogs and Groupware - Harsh
2. RDBMS - Ivan
3. App Servers - Trevor.
Everyone is welcomed, there are no charges for the meeting.

Suse 9.1 Live my not be very good for low end systems
but my experiences with Suse 9.1 personal ( for which
they provide free download ) is pretty good.
I used it on a P III system with 128 MB ram (Compaq
deskpro) and it auto detected all hardware. The
response time is also very good. I personally think it
is a very good distro for the desktop.
