:Yes, that did it.
Umm.. you guys realize that setting CPUTYPE will generate specific
instructions for that particular processor? If you do not actually
have a pentium-pro cpu in your box, using CPUTYPE=i686 is likely to
produce instructions that your cpu does not support.
In particular, ppro optimizations will use the CMOV instruction.
Is 'CMOV' in the Features line near the top of your dmesg?
Post the first 25 lines of your dmesg output.
Also, what -O optimization level are you trying to compile things
under? e.g. for example, -O2 or -O3 has historically been rather buggy
with GCC2. Even so, I tried recompiling my kernel with
gcc2 -march=pentiumpro -O3 on an AMD64, and it seemed to work.
