Re: [MiNT] Modern Kernel ST support

Hi Mark.
MiNT 1.15 IS working with the Ethernec driver. The issues you are
running into are related to the 68000s incompatibility with 1.15's
68020+ slip.xif and sockdev.xdd.
Perry Drechsel has found ST-compatible ones, and his EasyMiNT ST howto
is found on Maanke's Atari pages.
and download the ST-Pack.
Maanke had an EasyMiNT distribution which installed a Minix filesystem
which is working on 68000 instead of a Linux one.
Using this would be the easy way, running through Perry's howto would be
the not so easy way. Unfortunately the later is not yet translated from

Greetings, Jens
