hey, you're right. I just wrote a litte pthread test program - and the
machine dies. Damned, since the 1.6.1 will also not compile the mozilla
(assembler error !).
Thanks for pointing it out.
So I guess I'll have to wait until this is fixed :-(
To the MIPS gurus working to fix this: I'd like to help on this one. I can
grant root access to this locking machine for debugging. Crash can be done
quickly with my test program.
