Not at all.
I have 2.4.22 on all four of my machines -- on my Thinkpad T30 and old
office Pentium 3/350 over the Speakup Modified Fedora Core 1.0, and on
an old Pentium 2/200 and on a DEC Alphastation AS200 both running Debian
Woody. I'm having no problems.
I will say that the art of configuring a successful kernel compilation
has become considerably more complex than it was a year or two ago. It
has taken me multiple attempts to build a kernel that compiles and works
properly. But, I don't blame the kernel for that.
Complexity is the result of numerous features. It is the antithesis of
simplicity for that very reason.
