Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Looking at <http://bugs.debian.org/609690>, it seems that gcc has been
defaulting to -march=i586 at least since squeeze, or r4557 in the GCC
packaging SVN [1].

This would seem to indicate that you now need at least a 586 to run

However, section CPU of the release notes still says:

> However, Debian GNU/Linux wheezy will not run on 386 or earlier
> processors. Despite the architecture name "i386", support for actual
> 80386 processors (and their clones) was dropped with the Sarge
> (r3.1) release of Debian[2]. (No version of Linux has ever supported
> the 286 or earlier chips in the series.) All i486 and later
> processors are still supported[3].

This should be updated.
