Hello All,

Atlast I have succeeded in booting 2.6.19.2 on mutiple x86 machines. I
did observe a strange dmesg parameter behavior in this case:-


1) Compiling with SMP as Generic (CONFIG_X86_PC is not set, CONFIG_M686=y)

.........
.........
Using x86 segment limits to approximate NX protection
.........
.........
Using APIC driver default
.........
.........

2) Compiling with SMP as Processor specific (CONFIG_X86_PC=y,
CONFIG_MPENTIUM4=y)

I do not find the above mentioned parameters in this case.


I am trying to figure out what might have happened here? Any clues pl...


Thanks,

~Akula2

I am very sorry, have lost my mind with the night out with these
kernels (messed up).

Yep, you are right. Case 1 is FC6 kernel. Case 2 is my customization
with 2.6.19.2. I was thinking about APIC in Case 2....

I don't think the "segment limits" message shows up in stock kernels, 
are you sure that was from 2.6.19.2? That sounds like a Fedora kernel 
with Exec Shield.
