Sorry for my incomplete description.

But my problem is as you have guessed correctly using a newer Linux kernel on

a 164UX system.

The last kernel which works for me on the 164UX is 2.6.22.

Have tried newer versions (2.6.27 and 2.6.31) on a 164LX with Alphabios which

work correctly.

This means it is not mandatory to use SRM Console with newer Linux kernels.

The 164UX has unfortunately ARCSBIOS only.

All my trials ended with kernel panic.
