SubjectRE: Linux-1.3.97 aka the "Killer Penguin" release..

Here are a couple of ducks :-)

ps -af gets a segfault. ps -a is fine, ps -f is fine. ps -af sometimes
will be fine. All with procps 0.99, recompiled daily.

I am still getting /dev/cua%d: No such file... at boot time. It works OK,
folks, a few minutes later. So must be a race between some /etc/rc
scripts and kerneld starting. NO BIG DEAL.

Good News Dept:

Four Penguins are now running 1.3.97, average load, nothing ugly, no smoke,
even the mouse's middle finger is back!

News.daily did not run yet, neither some of the nasty mirrors. But my hopes are
high.

Another apology: Something freaked out on our ftp server and it demanded
to re-mirror the entire helsinki site. As I do not argue with machines,
I finally let it do that. Suvked up some unnecessary bits :-(
