Anti-Trend I would be really thankful to you if you help me with respect to a few of my problems 1) This is a post i made in srcds forums could you please advise me over it :- Kernel Settings Help. - srcds.com forums 2)Are there any options in kernel settings (networking options maybe?) which may help reduce the internet latency. 3) I got AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ , is x2 the right choice or any other ? 4) With respect to param.h what is the difference between hz and user_hz and which of these is equal to timer frequency we see in make menuconfig, because i wanted to set timer frequency 500hz manually because 500 is not a choice in make menuconfig. I don't have much experience and i am to a large extent counting on you for my answers to my doubts. Thank you I will check the new kernel and comment on it in some time.
