Huh? I'm running 1.3.3 and hybrid a.out/ELF (with an all-ELF XFree
3.1.1), using and libc-4.6.29 (both a.out and ELF). Yea,
it's a bit odd-looking and getting old (been too busy lately to upgrade
lib's), but it works *perfectly* under 1.3.3...I even got this blasted
new SMC EtherPower (PCI) card to run on 10Base2 today, thanks to Don
Becker's web page (though I'm using the older version of his tulip.c
driver, 0.05, as there's a bug somewhere--I think I know where it
is--with switching to 10Base2 in the 0.07 version).
