Kernel panic with U5 CPU ??

: Does anybody know if there is incompapility with
: UMC Green CPU (486SX-33MHZ) known by BIOS as U5,
: and Linux. I have come to this conclution because of following
: errors on installation. And these messages come with BOOT disks.
: Depending on bios setups the messages are:

: 1)
: ..
: ..
: Calibrating delay loop..math_emulate:0010:0010ebe4
: Kernel panic: Math emulation needed in kernel
: In swapper task - not syncing

Hmmm... Looks like you are using a kernel without math emulation, which is
required when a 486 SX processor is used.

1. Kernel panic with U5 CPU ??

Thank's for everybody for your help !
I have found a solution to these problems:
I have changed CPU from UMC to INTELL.
After i changed CPU (still 486SX) everything went
just fine.
By the way..Slackware works just fine in 386 and 486SX
You don't need to worry about math emulation.

2. shared objects and sym links

3. Kernel panic with Cyrix Cx486 S25 CPU (similar to U5 CPU panic)

4. HP DeskJet 1220C/PS

6. internet service provider

7. Q: U5-360->U5-400 upgrade woe

8. Printing thru Linksys EPSX3 print server - how?

9. Q: u5(300) to u5(400) upgrade woe
