-- I couldn't compile xview/openwindows. The problem seems to
stem from a somewhat unorthodox vararg handling. I tried the
3.2p1 source tree. Is there anything better?
-- The srand48(3) libraries seem not to return 48-bit values,
but rather 16-bit random integers.
-- The mtools(1) package segfaults.
-- The getpwent/getpwuid/getpwname(3) etc. seem not to work. They
are required by the ml(1) X11 mail program, which I compiled
(and tested) with Digital Unix and tried to run under Linux.
-- playmidi has a similar problem.
-- interrupts coming from ISA cards seem not to be reported
correctly. If for instance I flood the serial port interrupts
are shown appropriately in /proc/interrupts, but a few minutes
later they disappear from this file.
-- I run in syslevel 5 (X11), with 'xdm -nodaemon' started by init.
If I shut down the login manager (with ^R) and attempt to
kill xdm, the screen goes crazy and I have to reboot.
In one word, RH4.0 is great, but there seem to be many problems
and edges to smooth out. Has anything been done in this direction?
