    SubjectRe: Problem with k7 optimizations in 2.4.x?
    On the iwill mobo? (I haven't heard of this problem on other
    motherboards.)

    I'll grab the latest -ac today and give it a try this evening.

    (Just for reference, the system is the Iwill kk266, 1.2G tbird, 512M
    pc133, ata66 drive - everything has AMD-approved stickers and nothing is
    overclocked.)

    On Fri, 13 Apr 2001, Alan Cox did have cause to say:
