I also run Debian on embedded computers mainly running SC1100 CPUs and
processor : 0
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 4
model : 9
model name : 486 DX/4-WB
stepping : 4
The kit may be over 8 years old, but it runs just fine and has been running
Debian stock kernels all its life. I would like to keep it that way.
