Re: New kernel fails on thinkpad systems

On the thinkpad 600 series machines the new kernel kills all

I've tried installing the 424 kernel on a TP-600E (with 224M ram) - and I got the following errors:

-----
Test transaction complete, Success!
kernel 100 % done 1/1 memlock: Cannot allocate memory
Couldn't lock into memory, exiting.
mkinitrd failed

I tried setting all limits I can think off - to unlimited - and then
the kernel would install. (it took something like 30 min for the
install)

I tried to see if the same problem was there with the release kernel
(358) - but this one installs fine - and within 10 min.

I've briefly tried APM suspend - and audio on the 600E (with kernel
424) - and it appeared to work fine.
