Description Edward Schlunder 2000-08-07 23:53:19 EDT
I use two webgear aviator 2.4 pro wireless ethernet cards to let me roam
around the house. My desktop machine (dual CPUs) provides the Internet
connectivity to my laptop. Really wish SMP kernels would include pcmcia
modules so this setup would be easier to achieve.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-18 17:33:22 EDT
I'm told that we turned it off because it required APM which caused
it to conflict with the SMP kernel.
Comment 2 Edward T. Schlunder 2000-08-20 14:06:41 EDT
Well, in pinstripe kernels, you are already enabling APM on SMP kernels
(probably for ATX power off on shutdown):

[root@k9spud SOURCES]# grep APM kernel-2.2.16-i686-smp.config 
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2002-12-14 19:56:34 EST
Later kernels do the APM management at runtime for SMP
