I think I got it all sorted and am building a new kernel. It will have
a -2 on the end instead of a -1. I'll test it in a bit. I got some
things to prepare for tomorrow plus we have storms coming in tonight.
The rain is already on the radar and it is a bit windy here. May take a
bit before I reboot. Just depends. ;-)
I'm hoping to get this sorted so I can then move on to more issues, and
maybe a new thread. lol
Will reply in a bit on what blows up. ROFL
I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or
how you interpreted my words!
Miss the compile output? Hint:
