PROPOSAL> New Support Forum for Linux: #LinuxChat on IRC

Post by Carl Per » Sat, 04 Jan 1997 04:00:00

I'm proposing this support medium to help new and experienced Linux
users get more up-to-date support, as well as some actual contact with
the authors of the software.  This also makes a great forum for
launching a new software product.  Please read the #LinuxChat webpage
at before signing on
to IRC.  The official launch will be Saturday, Jan 4, 1996 at 0100 GMT
(About 6AM EST) on Undernet.  Obviously the channel name will be
#LinuxChat.  Hope you can stop by!  Please send comments and
suddgestions via eMail, and/or replys to this post.  Thanks!

1. SLIP/PPP -->new kernel-->new compiler-->new make

Hello world!

I'm trying to install SLIP or PPP (made no choice yet, any tips?)
Therefore I needed a new kernel and tried to install 1.1.45.
To compile this I needed a new gcc version. I downloaded gcc 2.5.8, libc
4.5.26, binutils 1.9l.4 and tools 2.16.
I un-tar-ed them all and started to compile.
I now need gnu make 3.70 (in stead of 3.69) where can I find this?
I also have problems with, witch is linked to
It sais: desire minor version 514 and found 404
How do I solve this?
final question: Why isn't there a HOW-TO about these things?

I hope anyone can help me with this.

Greetings and thanx in advance,

Perjan Moors.
