Lucky sod, Had 4 meg machine running X, You certainly learnt the desirability
of make so as not to rebuild untouched source files. And to keep the size of C
files down to a minimum to minimize rebuilding time. Plus always adding new
to the top of a file so that the compiler would see your new probably
first so it wouldn't waste time compiling known working code and keep you
for diagnostics. Shudder.
Ill draw a veil over the multi hour kernel rebuilding to protect the
in disbelief at multiple attempts at installing slackware unto machine
Disk number x of course was always buggered, dance for joy at loan of
hard drive. A full 80 meg partition with X & full development environment
and space left
over, luxurious amount of room. Damn memory was always too tight though to
make it an
*enjoyable* development platform.
