Hello all.

I finished installing my alpha yesterday, it works nice :) . But i'd like to run some pieces of software on it, wich seem to only work on x86 architecture :( . I mean, per example : teamspeak :(.

If someone has a clue about em86 status ?

Thanks !

Quick google search found the following:

http://www.alphalinux.org/faq/FAQ-16.html

which links to ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/DEC/Linux-Alpha/em86/

Judging by the dates of the last release (mid 03), it dosent appear any new work is gonna be done on that anytime soon. You could try doing a manual install on an alpha and see if it will even compile? If it still compiles/runs it may be trivial to make an ebuild for it.
