Hmm I haven't given as muich care to my linker.hints file as I could. I
think I will experiment with giving it, at least, the correct stuff for
the console, that might give me the probe messages back.
Good hint, I think this one's likely to fix the probing/printing
problem, but what about the problem with my nfe ports? If I activate
them with ifconfig, it locks up my computer, that's kind of a mean way
to react ...
