BTW, has anyone gotten stalin to work lately? I ran my 512mb Athlon
for the whole night and was not able to compile stalin 0.11 (gcc 4.1.2).

Heh.  Started purely out of curiosity...  I'm not holding my breath:

It's a 1Gb Athlon...  And it's the DB server for my lab, so I'll have to kill it as soon as the students want to do any work.  Well I'm not holding my breath for that either...
