diff betwen good and bad config
For situation like this i have a disk with LFS and after many
compiled kernels and different configs i came to the conclusion
that with kernel 188.8.131.52 difference between working and
non working kernel is few settings in .config file.
diff is attached
I will try to reduce the diff but it takes much time.
Any boot kernel parameters to try ?
I found out that machine boots with:
nohz=off highres=off nosmp
Installed Fedora 9 and for now everything is working ok.
I must also return the machine to owner so i will close the bug.
