If Krzysztof has any patches for testing available, I'm happy to give those
a spin on any of my Alphas. I have various AlphaStations available (233,

FWIW, I haven't had any issues installing Debian unstable inside qemu-system-alpha
with the images I am regularly creating for Debian Ports:

Let me know if you run into any problems.
