Re: build with SMP causes (multiple?) issues on my system
Eric Haug pointed out what my problem was to me, and I just noticed that
he had posted to the list about this causing issues for some people on
Aug 1 entitled "SMP freezes when ttyd0 getty started". Thanks Eric,
sorry I missed that post to the newsgroup.
This has allowed the machine to finish starting up, and get to a login
Interestingly enough though, when booted into single-user mode with SMP
enabled, the system still has issues with the Syncing discs part,
(note: it does not have this problem normally, even with SMP, but only
in single-user mode.)

So, I went back in (after some aggrivation with booting the computer
from a livecd, since vi nor ee wanted to agree with me when in
single-user mode, but that's a side story), and removed the SMP from the
kernel config, rebuilt it, and rebooted, and ran into my second issue.
Upon trying to reboot (from single-user mode while SMP was enabled in
the kernel), it attemped to perform the normal "Syncing discs .. "
followed by numbers, often eventually repeating the same number over and
over, and gives up. It prints out the messages:
giving up on 1 buffers
Debugger("Busy buffer problem")
CPU1 stopping CPUs: 0x00000001
Stopped at Debugger+0x23: mob $0,in_Debugger.354
and then it enters the debugger (the same one from hitting ctl+alt+esc).
Now, when I was talking to GeekGod, it was suggested that I type
"panic" followed by "reset". So, I tried typing "panic" and was greeted
by a very interesting screen of text which probably makes sense to
someone, and the line "CHKTOKEN loop 1" repeating over and over and
over. At this point GeekGod suggested that I really need to send a bug
report in, and that pretty much brings this up to speed.
