Hi,
This is my first post to this mailing list although I have been lurking
for a couple of months... 

I am facing 2 problems with my GNU/Linux box (Redhat 7.2, Kernel 2.4.19)
since I installed the 2.4.19 kernel a couple of months ago.. 

1) My system does not turn off automatically after issuing the powerdown
command.. I have to turn it of manually. Earlier, with the RH 7.2
default kernel (2.4.7-10), the power would switch off automatically.
Here are the how the relevant variables are set :
CONFIG_PM=y
CONFIG_APM=m
# CONFIG_APM_IGNORE_USER_SUSPEND is not set
CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE=y
CONFIG_APM_CPU_IDLE=y
# CONFIG_APM_DISPLAY_BLANK is not set
CONFIG_APM_RTC_IS_GMT=y
CONFIG_APM_ALLOW_INTS=y
# CONFIG_APM_REAL_MODE_POWER_OFF is not set

I got these settings from linuxnewbie.org a couple of months ago. They
do not work for me, nor can I explain why they are the way they are.
They seem to work for others with a similar problem though.

2) I cannot mount audio cd's anymore. I can play them through gtcd, I
just cannot rip them.. The mount command tells me that I got a bad fs
type or there are too many mounted filesystems. I can mount normal data
cd's easily enough..

Also, what is a good strategy to follow while compiling a kernel? Is it
better to make as many modules as possible or the other way round? Are
there any particular features which would be better off as part of the
kernel image rather than as modules? Currently, I have compiled very few
features as modules.  

Thanks for your time..
