Re: FX 5200 + Debian Etch won't work for me.
I'm sorry, you say "try a newer kernel" as though it's a trivial affair. The last time I compiled a kernel it took half a day's worth of configuring before I even got as far as a build.
However, I have attached another bug report.
The rest of the system runs flawlessly with uptimes only interrupted by power failures. It's on 24/7 running news, mail, web, irc, ftp, etc. server software and is completely up to date as per the Etch Stable repositories.
