Re: Kernel 2.6.18-4 issues

Hi Mike, FWIW, I have the same chip, AMD64 Athlon 3200+. I use the K8 kernel
image when running a 64bit kernel but I have always used a 686 kernel image
for 32 bit so I use 2.6.18-4-686 and not 2.6.18-4-k7. The description of
the K7 kernel is: "2.6.18 on 32bit AMD Duron/Athlon/AthlonXP machines." but
you are using a 64bit chip (albeit in 32bit mode). Maybe trying the
2.6.18-4-686 linux-image package will solve your problems.

Thanks, Jonathan. I decided to try the k7 image after learning that it existed. I did a little googling and determined that it would be a little more appropriate. I thought that it might fix an issue I had with the previous kernel (2.6.12-686) where only half of my memory was recognized...and it did. Maybe it wasn't the k7 image that fixed it...instead it could have just been the newer kernel. I'll give the 2.6.18-4-686 image a try if nothing pans out here.

Thanks again,
