Does your SMP kernel not boot, or does it go bad after running a while?

I've been running a pair of DS20s with stock 2.4.1 built with EGCS 1.1.2
with no problems to speak of, either GENERIC or DP264.

Others on this list have had quite a few problems trying to generate a
working kernel using GCC 2.95.2. I do not know if later 2.95.x solve the
problem, but believe there may be a recent thread on this list that sheds
light on the subject.

Good luck.
