Description Joshua Jensen 2000-08-17 14:28:00 EDT
In stock RHL 6.2, my new AMD Thunderbird 700 MHz processor is detected by
the installer as a "686".  On first boot after the install, I get messages
about GPF and PIII registers.  I installed the i586 version of 2.2.16-3
during a system rescue, and everything was better.

I thought you might want to know of this, as Winston will probably be run
in many places on AMD Thunderbirds.

This is actually fixed in the later 2.2.16 kernels, and Winston should work

I don't know of a work-around for 6.2 at this time.
