The main purpose of my project here is to write a kernel modesetting driver. Apparently lots of FSF fanatics use Yeelongs entirely from the terminal, so the potential for faster console scrolling speed is somewhat appealing to them. ;) > Out of interest... did you get around to those n32 stages at all?

The main problem I run into is that I can't get catalyst to acknowledge any package.keywords files (which as I understand might be by design), so I'm unable to put together a stage from the versions I'd like to stabilize. Are your recent o32 stages straight-up ~mips? Can you post your spec files somewhere? Matt
