I built 2.6.0-test2 for my Dell Inspiron 7000 notebook (PII, 300Mhz) with
a RH9 distribution. I build the kernel on another system (1.33GHz) using

I was missing some device support, so did a "make menuconfig". The
configuration options were shown, I selected "Sound -->" and pressed
enter. The terminal went back to text mode and then hung. Gnome-terminal
started consuming all unused CPU cycles.

I could recover the process by closing the tab or resetting the terminal,
but this would only fix the problem for the moment. Frequently, it
wouldn't even finish redisplaying the screen before it locked again.

This would happen running "make menuconfig" locally or via ssh on another

This is likely caused by some difference in the tty code in 2.6.0-test2.
The problem does not occur under 2.4.20-18.9. If 2.6.0-test2 is correct,
then I might need an updated version of gnome-terminal suitable for 2.6.0.
