Nope, my AMD K-6 200 works just peachy with Linux, and X
Maybe it's because you upgraded a Gateway? I always thought
that they were in the business of selling new computers.
Upgrading, to them, doesn't make the best business sense.
BTW, I always build my own systems, they 'upgrade' real well.
Tske this box, for instance. I built it on a lark, because I had some parts
I got the CPU, MOBO, and a case, put in what I had lying around, and
away I go!
What really impressed me was, this system doesn't perform bad at all.
It's sometimes twice as fast as my genuine Intel system.
And I haven't had _any_ compatibility problems.
Not with the microprocessor, not with any of it.
