Re: kernel recompile slows keyboard
- Well, I didn't change settings but, it cured itself this way: when I
restarted pcmcia, my keyboard and mouse froze; I powered off, then
when I rebooted back into the new kernel all was well! Now I just have
to figure out what's going on w/ pcmcia locking up my laptop.
thanks for the reply.
