Update on the status of Linux on the DEC Alpha CPU


Jim shows us Linux/Alpha, a port of Linux to the Digital Alpha AXP. Jim was at our March 1995 meeting, when the Alpha port was in its early stages; the project has made tremendous progress over the past year, and Jim shows us where things stand now. The kernel port is pretty much ``done'', and the main work these days involves doing platform-specific things on new hardware (e.g. DEC rolls out a new PCI-based Alpha box, and we qualify and tweak Linux to run on it).
