    SubjectProblem with k7 optimizations in 2.4.x?

    I don't know if this is a problem with my hardware setup or config
    settings or what, but whenever I try to run a 2.4.x kernel on my machine
    with k7 optimizations the computer will never fully boot and seems to
    give random errors about being "unable to handle kernel NULL pointer
    dereference at virtual address xxxxxxxx" and other errors.
    This has happened with the debian 2.4.2 package and my own
    compilings of 2.4.3, 2.4.3-ac4, and 2.4.3-ac5. If I compile it with 586
    optimizations it works fine.
    My hardware is as follows: Athlon/Thunderbird 850 Mhz CPU,
    Iwill KK266 Mobo. (uses VIA kt133a chipset and 686b southbridge) with
    the latest BIOS update from which is supposed to fix the
    data corruption problem, 256 MB SDRAM and IBM DTLA-307060 HD.

    Thanks for any info/help.
