After cleaning up the mess, removing the leaking capacitor, replacing the damaged resistors, jumpering the eaten RXD trace, ignoring eaten traces for other serial, parallel, and audio signals, reflowing the 200-pin CPU board connector, and kicking the CPU board connector one final time before giving up, my Amiga 4000 starts booting again. I'm sure now it'll be fine until 2038 ;-)

Kconfig is missing a "prevent" directive to force other options off the way "select" enables them.

The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

So that explains why serial console input stopped working on my Amiga 4000...

TuxCon 2010 soldering workshop was lot of fun, we had massive invasion of kids (4-12 years old) wanting to learn how to solder and they were soldering better than adults! The soldering kits are now available on the web for these who missed TuxCon. olimex.wordpress.com/2019/06/1

@trini Surely you've realised by now that ST equipment (mal)functions exactly to the extent required for creating a dramatic situation that can be resolved in 42 minutes.

If I would receive 0.02€ for every device in the world that runs software I wrote, I could buy Eden Hazard.

This flawed decision has to be overturned.

Science is not politics.

IEEE, a major science publisher, bans Huawei scientists from reviewing papers | Science | AAAS

Scientists worldwide should work together.

About the politics:
Note that we HAVE serious doubts about so many things in CS. CISCO and Intel "bugs" could be by design, or be widely known in Secret Services, who perhaps co-fund Google, etc etc. NIST and NSA story on encryption. Research co-funded by DARPA.
