Alpine-2.2-kernel needs cmov capable cpu
1st of all, thank you for maintaining such a “perfect-fit-distro”, I’m an absolute fan of AlpineLinux.
Trying to upgrade an elderly IBM-Netstation (Pentium 233 ?MMX?) from the latest Alpine 2.1 to 2.2 resulted in an error-message on reboot, stating this kernel would need a cpu with “cmov”-feature.
Does this mean, that Alpine’s sysreqs increased, or could this issue be resolved using a compile-switch, a boot-parameter, or such?
10q so much
