Subject2.0.24 is VERY unstable
Date
	Kernel 2.0.24 crashes on my computer nearle every time I run
exmh. A strange thing is, that if i wont't move my mouse, when I start
it [exmh], it has relatively big (60%) propability not to crash (and
when I move (much) the mouse it will allmost certainly crash). I
suspect,
that this bug might be same origin, than the one i wrote in this list
about a month ago with the subject "A fatal bug in traps.c in all
versions >=2.0.11".

Just for case I tested memory of my computer. It seems to be
in a perfect condition. I suspect, that Linux is not fully compatible
with my Cyrix 6x86 P150+. Problem is propably in some timings with my
Cyrix proccessor, because if I use predefined memory timigs for 60 ns
memory (my memory is 60 ns), I will experience a fev grashes with
previous
kernels too (those with version >=2.0.11) --- so I had to disable
"DRAM Speculative Leadoff" from my BIOS.

Is this bug / compatibility problem going to be solved in near
future, or should I get a real pentium? Allso if some one thinks, that
I have broken / missconfigured hardware, please tell it to me (I
have checked all trivial IRQ/DMA/BIOS-settings, and my system works
perfectly with OS/2 Warp).

I allso noticed a bug in kernels 2.1.6 and .7: it wont compile
with mcdx -driver. Make complains:
