[PlanetCCRMA] Kernel 2.4.20-4.ll.acpi(smp) panic!

Hi there,

Just the first time here to report the following.

On 2003-04-02 00:00 GMT, I've managed to complete that major repository 
update, by installing planetccrma-core-smp. That was after the apt version 
upgrade, configuration and repository update.

I ended up installing the new 2.4.20-4.ll.acpismp kernel and respective alsa 
driver modules, along with other alsa stuff as well.

My problem is, the new kernel (either up or smp) gets sistematically stuck 
at boot with a unpleasant kernel panic, somewhere on sched.c:577 (if I 
remember well), just about when "Mounting local file systems" message is 

The machine is a dual PIII@1GHz, w/512MB RAM, 2x120GB HDD IDE, where the 
previous kernel 2.4.19-1.llsmp always ran very well, and still is in fact.

So, I'm asking if anyone in this list had experienced the same.

Tonight I'll peek around with the kernel configuration (wich I've installed 
the source as well) and see where things may be wrong.

FYI, I also run in this very same machine, in distinct disk partitions, a 
deeply hacked SuSE 8.1 distro where I run a custom 2.4.20 stock kernel, also 
patched by Andrew Morton's low-latency and Robert Love's preemptible 
patches. As this is somewhat my sandbox, I manage to have JACK, MusE and 
Ardour compiled from latest CVS. Although ardour freezes now and then (but 
that's expected ;), everything runs very happilly for almost two months. And 

Best regards,

rncbc aka Rui Nuno Capela
