    I has nothing to do with gcc, Alan mentioned the magic (or cursed is
    probably the better choice :) word, ACPI. The kernel in SLES 8 has
    the x440 blacklisted so ACPI gets turned off automagically :)

    As John mentioned, you can use a generic kernel provided its
    recent enough AND you configure it properly for the box.

    Cheers,
