Ok, after a few reboots with APIC & APIC-IO built in kernel it hung there with a CPU APIC error, so recompiled w/
- no ACPI
- no APIC
- no APIC-IO
- no Power management
(none as modules, nothing).
kernel boots quick and things run good, hope someday A Guru programmer will figure this APIC out so we can use the IRQ routing and ...etc, would be nice to save power when things are not in use just for the sake of extending the life of hardware.
The Analog Kid: Some nice info there for GCC-3.2, thanks.
