I haven't tried kmem-ps under Linux 2.1. Are you saying it's broken now,
or were you just not aware of it?

Title: kmem-ps
Version: 1.3.95+
Entered-date: May 3, 1996
Description: The kmem based process status suite of programs
Keywords: kmem

There are already help files that start out, "unless you really know what
you are doing, you should say Y here" and go on to explain why. Hopefully
most people who have the initiative to compile their own kernel will have
enough to press "?" or "h" when configuring it.
