Re: [linrad] W3SZ system configuration and console switching..answer to Kohjon'sposted questions LONG

Hello Roger and all,

Thank you very much for your input I'm sure our post will be of help.
I will reply or add if necessary but I won't repeat it each by each.
Please understand that I'm not an expert in Linux but Unix has been
my favorite operation system for years, that's all.
Also please understand my limited language I always pay attention
and spend my time long as necessary trying not to write incorrect.

Yes, certainly you are right.
Mine is Pentium III 500 MHz, not too slow it's alright:-)

I think update for gcc and it's related packages will be enough.
Mine is RHL 7.3 kernel 2.4.18-10.

384 MB here.

Now, this looks important:-)
Mine is Matrox Millennium G400 AGP

Almost same;
Delta 44 and a SoundBlaster (Ensoniq) PCI128 with OSS
5880 Ensoniq AudioPCI using same es1371 driver.

>I have gcc version 2.96.

Same here too; 'gcc -v' tells me 2.96-112.
By the way, gcc version 2.96 was firstly presented as a preliminary
release of 3.0 but RedHat has (badly) distributed it.
I read above in some IT magazine.

So, this is really the big surprise!!!

My thanks to you Roger!
I hope Leif will soon solve this out.
