Dr Watson is a kind of daemon that prevents the computer to reboot
error occured. He tells you that there was an error on a given file
he gives you then the registers states, etc...

No, I tested it, I have no conftest nowhere. I think the abort thing

No, it doesn't anymore.

I run Windows NT with 48 Mbytes of memory and there's no more
memory size on DOS mode.
And it doesn't come from the levels as I managed to build a
there are a lot of tree levels.
For now I have a really odd and funny thing:
the make all went within this point:
echo library is complete: o-gen68360/librtems.a
library is complete: o-gen68360/librtems.a
cd /rtems-build ; \
/rtems-build/gen68360/bin/size_rtems gen68360 o-gen68360 \
But then my HD-COPY tool appears! (I have this tool on the path!)
DO YOU YAHOO!?
