I have just completed an install of 2.4.8 on a woody box (K6-2 200mhz)
and a potato box (Athlon 1Ghz). I don't have a module load problem on
What, specifically, do you mean by 'Athlon optimizations'?
Here is what I have enabled on the Athlon
# Processor type and features
# CONFIG_M386 is not set
# CONFIG_M486 is not set
# CONFIG_M586 is not set
# CONFIG_M586TSC is not set
# CONFIG_M586MMX is not set
# CONFIG_M686 is not set
# CONFIG_MPENTIUMIII is not set
# CONFIG_MPENTIUM4 is not set
# CONFIG_MK6 is not set
# CONFIG_MCRUSOE is not set
# CONFIG_MWINCHIPC6 is not set
# CONFIG_MWINCHIP2 is not set
# CONFIG_MWINCHIP3D is not set
# CONFIG_MCYRIXIII is not set
# CONFIG_RWSEM_GENERIC_SPINLOCK is not set
# CONFIG_TOSHIBA is not set
# CONFIG_MICROCODE is not set
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G is not set
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G is not set
# CONFIG_MATH_EMULATION is not set
# CONFIG_SMP is not set
Am I missing something? Is there something I should be enabling for
the Athlon that I missed?
What did/do you have configured that I don't?
Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN
