the S/390 is a 31 bit architecture but at the end of this year i have a new one
that is a 64 bit architecture and is named zSeries/900.
The filesystem block size are 4k but i don't now who i can fond the system page
I must also install the 2.4.3 kernel on my system and than i can make a test
compilation and send you the report back.
I am a new linux user, so can you please say me how i see the system page size?
To prepare the system i need about 1 month.
