hmmm perhaps something like attach the hdd to the machine you installed on
go to the processor type and features field and specify the type of chip you
have... and add any other features you want
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage_current
image = /vmlinuz
--Once this is installed try powering down the system and attaching the hard
disk to the cyrix machine... and tell us what if anything happens.

Subject: [ILUG] Cyrix support
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.
