SubjectRe: [GOLDMINE!!!] Athlon optimisation bug (was Re: Duron kernel crash)
I don't have any problems with the kernel, but if I'm compiling (say) the
kernel or any large program, user-mode apps like gcc, make, etc all
randomly segfault on me.

I'm running a Duron 800 on a Asus A7V133 mobo - and no bios version I've
tried has made a bit of difference yet :p

(James Brown) | will have a room clearly marked as the Main Control Room.
| That room will be the Execution Chamber. The actual main
| control room will be marked as Sewage Overflow Containment.
