Description of problem:
Not really a bug, more of a question/enhancement. I upgraded to the latest
kernel release, 2.4.21-3.EL and went to build my own kernel from the src rpm on
my dual-proc itanium2 hp zx1 based zx6000.
I noticed that the default setting for .config is CONFIG_IA64_GENERIC my system
uses the hp zx1 chipset and i was wondering if rebuilding with
CONFIG_IA64_HP_ZX1=y will make any difference, or if the generic flag inculdes
basically, what would the advantages be to building with the zx1 flag? I noticed
extra zx1 data in dmesg when i did this.
Also, are there any other flags that can improve performance on my system?
thanks in advance,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel source
2. edit .config file
custom kernel building isn't exactly supported....
There aren't any advantages to building with
CONFIG_IA64_HP_ZX1=y...I'm closing this bug as resolved.
