I tried compiling the 2.2.16 from kernelhq. I just
couldn't get it to work well. I could boot, but it
kept hosing up (hard locks) probably due to my abit
mobo with the hpt controllers. The SuSE kernel works
well. My beef was why wouldn't a stock kernel work.
Well it probably would have, if I had compiled it like
the suse kernel, and used modules instead of puting
into the kernel. But, I was informed by another
poster that the 2.2.16 with the support built into the
kernel would be more stable with the BP6. I still get
hard locks. I intend to try and play with the kernel
some more over the weekend. I want to try the Suse
kernel, get it stable, then recompile with built-in
support for the drivers. But, if I may ask, Is there
an initrd issue with on-board UDMA-66 controllers? I
know that ide support is built in, so initrd doesn't
need to preload those. But, doesn't linux tread the
udma-66 and 100's the same as scsi? In this case, I
may have been hosed, as I didn't use the mk_initrd
Any thoughts appreciated... Ron
