Got a great writeup of one person's experience installing
Small Linux on his laptop and setting up PLIP.
I have been lost in Apache, PHP, mySQL torments. All three
are working fine on Windows 98, Debian Linux 2.2, but having
problems on my Palmax. I guess my build environment is
flaky. I mainly use the handheld computer as a terminal. But
it does have a 4 gig drive and I can use it as a full Linux
system when I don't have a cable attached to my desktop machine.
Systems at home:
main desktop: 233 pentium with 16 gigs and Debian 2.2 and
kernel 2.4.2 and glibc 2.2
Charlotte's machine 133 pentium with Windows 98
Small Machine with 486 and 4 megs with Small Linux , kernel
2.0.0 and libc 5.0
Palmax 133 pentium with Debian 2.0, kernel 2.0.38 and glibc 2.1
So almost no binary can be moved from one machine to another
and just work. Oh well.
On the parent front, mostly bad news. My father is sick and
my mother is no better. So Mothers day was a feeble day of
hard work and health care services.
