Also, I couldn't build an Athlon version of the kernel either, actually
for my Duron (btw, Duron should get listed in the processor config).
Build errors
("__memcpy3d" etc) were the same as the other posting I saw.

Other config issue: when I drop a .config in a clean kernel tree, I need
to do a 'make menuconfig' even though I don't make any changes in it, or
the subsequent
'make dep' fails. Maybe this is well-known, but it struck me as odd.

My 700Mhz Duron w/128M ram stalled thrashing once. After 20 mins, I did
a ctl-alt-del and it was still swapping so much that the Redhat7 init
script reported
failures for shutting some services down. Something like "VM swap page
bad somenumber" was printed a few times. I've heard the ac patches may
fix the swapping

In "make menuconfig": when you enable the first option here, the
additional option pops out in the wrong place:
[*] Generic PCI bus-master DMA support
[ ] Boot off-board chipsets first support
[ ] Use PCI DMA by default when available

Also the CONFIG_IDEDMA_IVB help info mispells "valid".

I was hitting the keyboard lockup when trying the Redhat7 Xconfigurator
program (I have a PS/2 mouse). Using xf86config instead worked fine. No
problems with
"gpm -t ps/2" either.

On a side note, back in the test-series kernel, I reported filesystem
corruption on my VIA IDE w/DMA on. I was surprised to find out that the
filesystem was only all messed up when mounting with an 2.2 system.
Using the newer kernel, none of the corruption was visible, and I was
able to recover everything.
Hopefully, my hard drive will live happily ever after.

Some filesystem questions: Is it possible for corruption to persist
after a mkfs over the old partition (and what if the mkfs is older than
the mkfs originally used to make the partition?). I was sure that at one
point, a directory from the old wiped out partition popped up after the
mkfs and an install of a distro. Also can a corrupted filesystem taint a
clean filesystem just through cp (again considering different versions
of the tools)? If you corrupt a hard drive, do you need to rewrite the
partition table if it "looks" ok? Is read-only mounting proof against
