Hello Linus,

as you requested i gave pl33 a try (also i am not a driver developer ;-)
Anything went fine except the SCSI drivers. I tried to compile a kernel
with AHA-1542 and NCR driver. Here's the error message:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/lib'
ld -qmagic -Ttext 0xfffe0 arch/i386/kernel/head.o init/main.o init/version.o

sd.o(.text+0x2295): undefined reference to `scsi_loadable_module_flag'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

I looked at the files and found scsi_loadable_module_flag only to be
defined between #ifdef MODULE ... #endif directives...


BTW. When i arrive home i will see if the mouse modules compiled ...
