I've installed the Redhat distribution (version 7.2) on a harddrive through
an Intel machine and then plugged that same harddrive into a Cyrix machine.
The errors at bootup are as follows :
CPU: Cyrix Geode(TM) Integrated Processor by National Semi stepping
Kernel panic: Kernel compiled for Pentium+, requires TSC feature!
What's the TSC feature?
I thought the kernel supports Cyrix chips, but hell! What do I know?
How do I compile the kernel to include this TSC feature?
The chip, by the way, is a Cyrix MediaGX 6x86.
Thanks a million.
