Comment 5 P Simmons 2006-12-10 12:03:00 UTC
VIA CentaurHauls Samuel 2 cpu has same problem.  Is this possibly because the
march is reported as i686, but the processor lacks complete i686 instruction set?

Using an i586 kernel works on this machine.

Closing it since no recent activity, hopefully it's been fixed.
