Okay, I've been trying on and off for weeks now to get ANY 2.4 kernel to run on 
my Cobalt RAQ 2 recently aquired on EBay for $250. It runs Cobalt's 2.0 kernel 
just fine, and I've managed to upgrade gcc and binutils to 2.95.4 and 
respectively. I can build the 2.5.47 kernel out of cvs cleanly, but when it 
boots I get swap errors like:

swap_dup: Bad swap file entry 4081004e

over and over and over.

The latest 2.4 kernel source from cvs also compiles cleanly, but just hangs.

Both of these kernels die in the execve() call at the end of init/main.c.

My debugging has lead me to believe there is some problem with the tlb, but I 
could certainly be wrong. Any suggestions?
