In the local computer club someone had a CD-R w. the downloadable iso
image of 3.4-R
I helped install the thing (i have 3.2 and 3.3 myself - 3.4 is yet to
arrive from my buyware source) on an old Cyrix P120 (P150+) based
First thing to do was a recompile - put in the ipfw related options
and kill the lines relating to 386/486 cpu's (leaving in 586 & 686
(Pentium & PentiumPro)
Everything went well - but on reboot - the messages said something
like "Panic : Processor type not configured" or something to the same
effect. it rebooted - and i stopped it and told it about
It booted - paniced and said weird shit about FPU, Int 16 etc.
I powered the machine off and on - asked it to try the original kernel
again - and all went well. i copied the original kernel on top of
kernel - rebooted (-r now) and everything went well... i looked trough
LINT - but couldnt find any references stating that there was
something like "cx586_CPU" or "i586_CPU_IS_CYRIX" or anything else
relating to the Panic error messages.
I edited the new config file again and added the "i486_CPU" line (so
"i386_CPU" was still left out) recompiled - installed - rebooted (-r
now) and everything went well....
what am i missing ?
tia & regards
