[parisc-linux] Same boot problem on a 9000/720/50 HP machine as on 712/60 of Niskanen

What is a newer kernel  ?
Date, version ?
What does IIRC mean ?

Ad tool-chain:

        I use the tool-chain of the puffingroup, selfmade from the
        latest version of 21.12.2000 or so. I build it from source
        and it was no problem except the fact, that the it must be
        `--host' not `--HOST' (I have some experiences in it).

        But it was not possible to build bash from the scratch in
        this way. host=hppa-linux, build=i386-linux should be the
        correct one, but ....
        The biuld process of bash (and I think for other too,
        does not call the cross compiler). The use of CC= AS= LD=
        etc has the other problem, that binary tools which are build
        in the build process are running on PA RISC, but they are used
        in i386 for further building.

        So my question: How can I tell an autoconfigured build process
        (standard linux source tree) to use the cross compiler on the
        right points.

	As I used RedHat up to now, I have no experience in
	debian packaging system. What are this files like
	dpkg-cross tool, etc...
	How to use them, how to install them.

	You say, the bash is a problem. Is this for other tools
	much easier, like `init' or daemons, etc...

Thanks for the help and a happy new year soon....
