Thanks for the replies. So my choices are:
1- Try 2.0.36, simply changing ARCH=alpha in the Makefile after
2- After installing a minimal slink, do a dist-upgrade to potato
and try 2.2.12? (Probably easier than find all slink
packages I'd have to upgrade in order to run 2.2.12)
It that it? Number one sounds easy as a first shot.
