Website Errata / System Requirements


On this page;


There is the following text next to i386:

"The first architecture, and not strictly a port. Linux was originally developed for the Intel 386 processors, hence the short name. Debian supports all IA-32 processors, made by Intel (including all Pentium series and recent Core Duo machines in 32-bit mode), AMD (K6, all Athlon series, Athlon64 series in 32-bit mode), Cyrix and other manufacturers."

I believe this is no longer accurate. Debian no longer runs on / or supports the AMD K6 series. It should be specified that a K7 or later is required to run.
