I am doing a favour for a friend - setting up a ftp server
for him. Obviously I am using Linux for stability and security (and $$$
factor as well...). The hardware he is using is a 'mini-pc' -
something about 20-25cm long, 14cm wide, and 10cm high (pretty small)
it's running a 300Mhz Cyrix Geode cpu (well, that is what the bios
says/kernel says on startup). I installed the OS to the HDD (laptop
sytle small ide connectors) - on my normal desktop machine...this worked
well. I then transfered the HDD to the small computer - booted - LILO
came up fine, but early on into the kernel boot - I get the following
"checking 386/387 coupling.....invalid operand 0000"
eventually it comes up with "387 failed - trying to reset"
I built some kernels with differening CPU support (cyrix III, 586...
etc) - but all give the same message :(
Does anyone know where I can get a pre-compiled kernel that solves my
problems? or can suggest another solution?
I asked my friend google, but couldn't find anything specific to this :)
