I’m not sure whether my problem depends on cmov or something else, but it happens on several old pc’s: a 120 MHz Pentium, a 500 MHz K6-2, …

The kernel seems to boot ok, but when it should start init, nothing happens. The last message, in verbose mode, tells about freeing 260k kernel memory.

The requirement for the processor is 233 Mhz. Why? Does it really mean Pentium II?

The versions 1.0.beta9 and 1.0.beta12 behave like this, 10.0.beta11 (on the 120 Mhz Pentium) complains about some missing processor feature and stops earlier.

How do I compile own kernel and build an iso image?
