Thanks again...and nope, no 2.5 fer me Mr. Phillips. Perhaps if I knew it was EXACTLY the same as 2.4.16....Pondering....Ouch!
heh,heh....I can get a full kernel in the time it takes to brew a cup of coffee......but you should be downloading the patch if your on a dial up.

Honestly, even though i should just patch my kernel, it really doesn't satisfy my mind. I am sort of compulsory that way, all or nothing...So I get the full deal, and that way I have a running backup of full kernels as well. SO, after what would take you a cup of coffee to make, it took me about 50. 2h19m LOL But it was worth it. I must say it was THE smoothest kernel build i've made so far. I was configured, made and rebootededed in no time with a perfect 2.4.16 kernel. Some nice new features. Finally got ext3 support and some other tidbits here and there. I am now beat after all that and am about to hit the keyboard with my face. I'll have a big kernel chasing me in my dreams tonight, I know it!

Yeah, I must admit that I prefer to download the complete kernel...I have about six of them at the moment...four that are bootable

kernel fun

Download of 29 Meg 2.4.16 on dsl: 3 minutes. (weeeee!)

Walk to friend's house where I downloaded source to, moving it to laptop, driving home, and transferring source to machine:
2 hours (damn traffic).

Kernel compile: 2min, 20 sec. (thank you AMD)

Coffee ready 2 minutes later. (thank you Mr. Coffee)

Duration of gut laughter after realizing I had accidently compiled the kernel for Pentium Pro: about twenty seconds.

LOL This post made my day! Thanks hahaha...Not makeing fun of you, just struck me funny-bone! Now I don't feel as bad since you were stuck in traffic the same amount of time it took me to download. 3 minutes? Dang and a 1/2! Right on with the AMD. I've got a killer sticker on the front of me box that says AMD Athlon "WhoopAss Inside" After going AMD 2 years ago i'll never go intel again!
