I tried it with 2.4.13 without the preempt patch and it worked ...i have not
tried it without the preempt patch for 14, but since i'm not using the drm
that comes with it. The only thing that i think could be it is the new
preempt patch. I'm using the latest one you released for pre5. Where is
the 2.4.14-pre2 preempt patch? all i see is pre5.
