Question Error in /var/log/messages


I was looking in /var/log/messages and found the following line:

kernel: Checking 386/387 coupling... OK, FPU using exception 16 error reporting.


Anyone knows what this means?

I don't know what the exact message means but it's something about checking for the floating point chip on a 386. It's not an error message so you'll be fine.
