Re: Problems with Duron Procesor
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
if i get it straight there is/was an issue with durons/athlons running on via
kt chipsets and k7 optimized kernels:
the optimization uses some 3dnow+ code for faster memory access which leads
to - well - unwanted effets. I read this somewhere in german c't, can't find
it now. maybe try a k6 or pII/III optimezed kernel
