Thanks for the info.
I did post, but didn't receive much info.
I'm thinking I need to change my .config
to x86_64(but at the moment waiting to see
if somebody says anything with lkml
before I change things)
then I'll go from there.
As for different kernel's
is successful. the error is from
the latest git yesterday.
