When the Linux load sequence halts at:
what is happening? Has LILO finished and the kernel code started,
or was LILO still running?
Does Linux/LILO have any issues with L2 cache?
The reason I'm asking these questions is that I've just "upgraded"
my P90 system with an IDT Winchip that runs internally at 233MHz.
When booting Linux, it typically hangs and shows the above message.
I tried disabling my 256K L2 cache, and then Linux boots just
fine, but is extremely sslllooowwwwww.
Perhaps if I can just get Linux past the boot stage it will run
just fine on the Winchip with the L2 cache on. Are there any
LILO options to try? What if I don't have a compressed kernel so
that LILO doesn't have to uncompress it? (I don't know how to do
this.) Just searching for ideas...
(Win95 and OS/2 run just fine on the Winchip with the L2 cache on.)
