2.6.x kernels and AMD K6 processor?
I've been running debian on my i-opener for quite awhile. I'm upgraded to the latest version, etch, and I've got a K6-lll+ cpu running with badflashes kit. I've also been using the 2.6.x kernels ever since they came out. I have no problem with compiling kernels, do it all the time on many machines, but for some reason I can't figure out, when I compile a kernel with the K6 chosen as the cpu, and the cpufreq stuff enabled, the kernel seems to compile fine, builds the initrd fine, and then always crashes halfway thru the boot. I can run kernels compiled for 486 and 586 cpus, but not the K6.
Anybody have a clue what the problem is? I don't have any problem with compiling these very same kernels (optimized for their own cpu) on other machines, just the IOP. I'm wondering if it's the cpufreq that does it, like does it try during boot to crank the cpu way up or something?
