Re: srm nightmare, milo & kernel future questions
generic 2.4.18?? <cough> <cough> Generic 2.4.18 has a ton of bits missing
for the alpha architecture. When we did the HP updated kernel 2.4.18 for
RH-7.2 on alpha we added 27 patches to fix various bugs.
Interesting. Were any of these fixes to the SRM nonvolatile variables
problem some people (like me) were having, or something that could be
related to it?
If you are going to
use a generic kernel, I would like to suggest that you try 2.4.21 which has
most of the previously mentioned patches.
Is it "bad" to use a generic kernel in general? I know I have a pc164, and
if I'm bothering to compile a kernel in the first place, should I compile
it for pc164 or generic? I was trying to compile generic because I was
trying to match the distributed kernel. What are the pros and cons of each?
