What is the output of "uname -r"?

2.4.18
this line from X might be helpfull
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.19-gentoo-r5 i686 [ELF]

Also there is a symbolic link in my /usr/src/linux-2.4.19-r5/ dir the link is linux-2.4.18 -> /usr/src/linux-2.4.18/ I don't know if that's of any importance but none of the other source directorys have such a link

Is there a location to discover what is broken under certain versions?
Quote:
linux-2.4.19-gentoo-r5
linux-2.4.19-gentoo-r5
linux-2.4.19-gentoo-r7
etc.
For example, I'm still using 2.4.19-r1. However, I've read of some people having problems with later 'r' versions and the
Promise controller I use. Would kind of like to avoid upgrading to something that is known to break my system.

bugs.gentoo.org, these forums and the mailing list archives are going to be your best bet. There is no one source for all problems. (though bugs.gentoo.org is closest)

TX2, I forget if it is ata/100 or 133. This thread suggests that r1-r7 don't work with it. Also in that thread is this:

Lol now it works with 2.4.19-gentoo-r7 kernel..

make mrproper
make menuconfig (select everything again)
make dep && make clean bzImage modules modules_install

Works perfectly now, kinda strange but I'm happy =)
make mrproper seems to be the key, though I haven't tried it. Anyone know what it does differently?

Just for the record, I hadn't gotten around to looking it up yet ;)

Thanks for the link.

Awe, c'mon! You've got the whole SEARCH thing in your signature! And you *still* didn't do it. That's the last time I look for an answer before asking a question. :P I've got to respect what a Guru has to say...

I was just trying to do too many things at once. I had a search page and was wading through results and
reading other threads at the same time. I shouldn't have asked :D
