I am installing the hsfmodem drivers for my ALI 5457 softmodem from
The following warning is supplied:
*Note:* The default stack size in original Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0
kernels is only 4K. Because some drivers require more stack space to
operate properly, we recommend using a kernel with a larger stack size
if you experience problems or crashes. You can either rebuild your own
custom kernel, or *get one of our replacement "stk16" kernels provided
for your convenience*
They are identical to the Red Hat kernels, except that the stack size
was increased to 16K.
I ASSuME that Centos 4 also has a 4K stack? Should I increase my stack
size to 16K and if so, how?
