I have had a frozen system twice after installing the new kernel in a
SuSE 7.3 system (upgrading thus from 2.4.10 to 2.4.18). This never had
happened before. But I am glad that this until now did not happen to my
webserver (same SuSE 7.3, same patch). (And as I have written in another
mail in this list, my Adaptec AVA-1505AE (SCSI controller) does not work
What is the best thing to do now - to go back to the unpatched kernel
(and to live with the security problem), to remain with the risk of a
freeze or to try the k_deflt-2.4.19-patch?
