Input from keyboard or mouse does not yield any reaction. I will setup swap
and try to reproduce it. What is the easiest way of getting at least core
files? A syslog daemon needs some of the precious bytes of floppy space. If
you can mail me a compiled and mulinux compatible version of tools to track
that error down, I can install them. I can use only use 5 more MB on my
harddisk (including swap).
I have not seen the error today, after 1 hour of ping localhost the load is
up to 1 but still running with 1 MB swap. Even recursive scripts can swap
out without errors. I have a lot of hope now.

I am missing the standard mode 320x200 in the X modelines. X is not running
yet. I have to figure out odd modelines. (28.32 kHz clock, 90 MHz pixel
