Athlon optimised 2.4.x range kernels - panics!

Athlon optimised 2.4.x range kernels - panics!

Post by Chri » Thu, 23 Aug 2001 14:36:59



Hey there,

I'm having a spot of difficulty getting a 2.4.2 up to 2.4.9 kernel
compiled with the 'athlon' architecture type. I'm using a Duron 900mhz
with a Soltek SL-75KAV motherboard (KT133A chipset). The 2.4.9 kernel
seems to work fine with the i686 architecture but I'd like to get the
optimisation for my CPU type. Any help or maybe a config file from
someone would be greatly appreciated.

I initially compiled w/Athlon and AGP and got kernel panics.  With a lot
of stuff to set up I went through a few more kernel compiles.  My last
(working fine) was w/Athlon set and AGP off (RH7.1, 2.4.2, ASUS DDR m/b).
I'm assuming the only option you changed between fail and success was the
Athlon option but if it helps I'll mail my last cfg...

1. Athlon + Athlon optimized kernel => _mmx_mmcpy problems

Hi,

I thought, as I have an Athlon, I should recompile my 2.4.18-ac3 kernel
for Athlon optimzied ... yadda ... but this causes serious problems.

After booting, it has quite a lot of depmod problems, with depmod -e it
shows all are '_mmx_mmcpy' and vmware can't compile, cause of the same
error.

so I had to go back to PIII style ... or I wouldn't have been able to
update vmware ... sad thing
