This is great!

I was able to compile the source from your source tarball with two changes:

file: Self4Linux-0.2.0/vm/src/any/os/os.c

I added #include <time.h> to this file.

file: Self4Linux-0.2.0/vm/src/unix/os/os_unix.c

I also added #include <time.h> to this file.

With those two changes, I was able to compile.  I get several warnings with 
G++.  My guess is that the code has not been updated for newer (stricter) 

I generated the debug executable so that I might have a chance with GDB if 
Self crashes.  It took about 15 minutes of CPU time to generate the initial 
image :-(  This is with an Intel P-II 400 PC with 384MB of RAM.

I am using SuSE 7.2, but the kernel is 2.4.7.

The UI comes up, but is rather slow even on the third or fourth time I do an 
action (just bringing up the middle-mouse menu takes a couple of seconds).

Now, I have to find where I put my Self documentation...

Thanks again for this Christmas present!

Where do I send the beer money?
