patching for 16k stacks

by fred_beondo / November 15, 2004 10:14 AM PST

I noticed there is a patch for increasing the kernel stack size to 16K included with the source code. I haven't been able to apply this patch. Maybe my syntax is wrong. Please advise on proper syntax to apply this patch. TIA

Which kernel are you patching (distro and version)?

Why do you need 16K stacks? Are you trying to get some binary driver working?
IIRC the old standard was 8K stacks.

Have you read up on why there has been a switch to 4K stacks? See: for some info.

Linuxant recommends 16k stacks for their driverloader. Running FC3 stock smp kernel prior to downloading their 16k stack kernel for FC3.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
