Folks (to the whole list, but esp'ly Messes Smith [NL & AU], I'll believe that my ISDN link is working when/if I see this echoed from the -questions list. I was busy rebuilding my 6.2 GENERIC kernel after having added
^device atapicam 72 hours ago when my feed slowed, then stopped. It `sputtered' a couple times over the next several hours. By 03:35 I was convinced that every thing on my LAN was working perfectly. My ISP said it was my ISDN line; they called the local telco. Turned out that the telco would have to "roll a truck". Which may have already happened since I saw blinking LED's on my router. ((*****)) Lest I stray *too* far OT, I'll share the results of my 3rd kernel rebuild on this Dell. It crapped out; it hung after printing out the sio0 line. I had to powercycle and went in by typing "8" (??) and by hand booting /boot/kernel.old. I tried twice more by removing part of the additions to GENERIC. Same; the new kernel still hung. Here are the sizes of the new kernel (with atapicam) and the old. -r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 7206901 Nov 23 21:00 kernel -r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 4001279 Apr 9 2007 kernel I realize that drivers can require a lot of space, but not over 1.2 megs. Att any rate, the newer kernel hangs. I will upgrade to the newest 6.2 and try to get the audio toys functioning. But does anybody know where I fouled up? Could it be as simple as Not having done a make clean before doing a make buildkernel? I don't burn // copy audio discs that often and haven't ever copied a DVD; I just want these new utilities to work.
