Hi Claus-Justus and all.
I have switched to a different machine now and
am trying to figure out if I can get Trakker
to work with ftape on a tiny:
486 Toshiba Satellite t1910cs notebook, 8M ram
Not much real estate, but it's what I have to
work with at the moment (can get to hard disk
space for compiling with nfs).
I have successfully installed Debian 2.1
(kernel 2.0.36) on this machine (I would
prefer to not to experiment with a contemporary
kernel and apps with such a small hard disk,
especially since it looks like 2.1 is stable
on this beast).
I notice that the kernel source for 2.0.36
doesn't have parport, parport_pc or plug
and play modules.
Is this kernel going to work with Trakker
on the parallel port and ftape-4.x-doc-1.03 or
must I go with 2.1.x?
