1.2.13 kernel is slower than 1.2.1 kernel

1.2.13 kernel is slower than 1.2.1 kernel

I was suprised recently when I booted from my old 1.2.1 kernel boot
disk and X-Windows software started signficantly faster than my shiny
new 1.2.13 kernel.  The X-apps start almost immediately with the 1.2.1
kernel, but with the 1.2.13 kernel get alot of hard disk action and
take significantly longer to start.  Any ideas from the experts??

I don't read the new very much.

1. IP alias - Kernel crash - 1.2.13 kernel, 3com 3c590 module

Hi there!

I'm running 1.2.13 (slackware, ELF)

My system is all PCI, and I'm using a 3com 3c590 PCI Ethernet card the
NASA 3c59x driver in module form. It worked just fine till I added the
"alias" patch, which was OK on another machine with a 3c509 (also driven
with a module)...

Now my kernel crashes spectacularly when I try to access the network.

Can anyone help? Or should I just ditch the PCI card and use a 3c309 ISA

Should I even consider going straight to Linux 2.x - and if so can anyone
recommend a really good CD-based distribution?

Any ideas?
