I'm not sure if it is gcc 3.0 or the kernel but something really really
sucks with alphas and 2.4 kernels.
Let's see, I've had:
- failure to compile or link kernels
- raid1 crashes
- reiserfs crashes
- ide DMA and interrupt timeouts, fixed when fall back to old
I'll give 2.4.18 a goo shortly, any suggestions on wether I have more
success with a gcc 3.0 or not?
