recompile for 386 --- not!
Posted on 2001-06-11
After installing slackware 7.1 on a hard drive in a P2 and moving the drive to a 386DX with a 387, the kernel (2.2) panics with 'recompile for a 386!'. So I put the drive back in the P2, select all the 386 related options and compile with 'make bzlilo'.
The kernel gives the same complaint back in the 386 every time. Is there some option that I might be missing that isn't in the 'processor options' section of the kernel's make config? Or does something else special need to be done when compiling on one platform and moving to another? I've done this successfully with a MUCH older slackware distro without any special changes between the P2 and the 386, but something is stopping this particular release.
Thanks for any help,
