Re: CPU requirements for powerpc

Please, do not build the distro with altivec enabled or will cut compatibility with all powerpc emb systems

Freescale,  Amcc and so and so .

In my case i have a dual 5020 and a quad core 5040 system and everytime apps or system command have altivec instruction inside the program crash.

there is not an altivec emultation working inside the linux kernel.

Technically even Altivec is not required:


Don't forget to set the usertags so that we can track those.
