I'm really curious how this will run on the PE2650.
Unfortunately It will be quite a while before I can try it :(
I'm beginning to suspect that the 2.4.18-17.7.x kernel has serious problems.
Since I upgraded my workstation to 2.4.18-17.7.x been having many X related
lockups. I even changed the video card but didn't help.
I went back to 2.4.18-3 that I had patched by hand to get it to work properly
with it's ak77-333 motherboard. It worked just fine.
I then installed 2.4.18-19.7.x and it's working fine also.
Hoping 2.4.18-19.7.x will fix the X lockups on the 2650. Not exactly 100% the
same symptoms. On my workstation the lockups were 100%. On the 2650 just X locks
up. Also on the 2650 it seems like only screen savers kill X.
