As I wrote some days ago, I tried a 2.4.21 RPM I downloaded from SuSE;
officially, there is no 2.4.21 kernel available from SuSE, but they have
FTP directories where their collaborators post unofficial stuff, and
that's where I took the 2.4.21 kernel. It didn't help with the freezing
problems, and, worse, caused other problems, so I had to go back to
In the meantime, I've tried compiling my own kernel out of SuSE's 2.4.20
sources and boot it.
So, if I knew what needs to be patched for preventing the workstation
from freezing after each sync, I might be able to compile a usable
kernel. Can somebody tell me what's needed?
