When my desknote crashed several days ago, I've tried to put another flavor of UNIX into it.
Yup, I tried to boot Belenix (Solaris-based) and PC-BSD (FreeBSD-based).
Both kernel got panic and dumped.
It seems that Linux is the only "free" kernel that will boot up my transmeta box.
(My Sempron 2100+ box has no problem at all)
Linux rules :-D
