I am just curious.
I have a file/web server that I updated with Slackware 8.1. It runs
virtual web hosts, DynDNS, PPPoE, NFS, NAT and some other minor services.
This is an AMD 386 40Mhz with a 387 co-processor add-on and 32MB RAM.
It is functioning fine but I was poking around /proc/cpuinfo and it
root@juanisan:/proc# cat cpuinfo
cpu family : 3
model name : 386
cpuid level : -1
Is there any harm in Linux not identifying stuff like the manufacturer.
I dont know if the i386 supports any extensions that would show up in
the flags field. Think the bogomips is right?!?
Hey it runs GREAT and I love this old box I bought piece by piece when
it was new :-) Like I said ... I was just curious.
I have not met a box Linux hasn't liked yet :-)
BTW it took half a day to compile 2.4.18 but It chugged away without a hitch!
