Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-03-01 20:43:35 UTC
What CPU?
If it is a Cyrix based CPU we know what the problem is and have it fixed
in later kernels.

Comment 4 Bill Huang 2001-03-01 21:59:37 UTC
Sorry,I am not sure.I will ask Hamada-san to send us the cpuinfo.

Comment 5 Bill Huang 2001-03-01 22:03:37 UTC
According to the output of lspci,I guess it is a Cryix base CPU.

Comment 7 Michael K. Johnson 2001-03-02 02:57:47 UTC
Should be fixed in recent kernels.  The next rawhide (2.4.2-0.1.19 or
later) is worth testing.  Reopen this bug if that doesn't fix it.
