Ok I've now got problems with the compiled kernel, I get panics on my multiple cpu machine on boot just after boot & before the prompt is reached. It's a lock on cpu #2 ( I believe cpu 3 ).
Unfortunately I don't have the exact message nor do I have a kernel dump as this machine is "meant" to be a production one and as such a boot of kernel.old was done. Does anyone have a 4 or greater cpu machine running 5.1-RELEASE succesfully ? I've got a 5.1-RELEASE machine running with the same kernel config & 2 cpu's without any problem so I can only think that it's something to do with more than 2 cpu's.
