I have not had this problem with building Paul's 2.2.12 kernel.  I did not use
a config file from a previous version, which sounds like the major difference
between us.

Or:  which version of gcc are you using?  I'm using the gcc from the fsirl
directory on, and the glibc and related files from the same

Subject: Paul's devel branch on Lombard?

I'm using Pauls' stable branch (2.2.12) from his rsync archives
on my Lombard PowerBook.  I've wanted to use the power management
features in the new kernels, but I have yet to build a kernel that
fully boots.

As of today's kernel sources, it boots but pulls a Machine Check in
one of my init scripts.  Each time I boot it, it does in a different place.
The attached dump is failing on the "exim" script ("S20exim").

I'm using the same kernel configuration I'm using for 2.2.12 (which
works great from the SCSI to the modem to the framebuffer to USB),
but 2.2.12 doesn't offer sleep mode.  :)

A hand-typed dump appears below.  I'll send my .config if it would

Machine check in kernel mode.
