the kernel also says "CPU: Intel 00/00 stepping 0a"


i tried transferring an scsi harddisk installed with redhat linux 6.2 kernel 2.2.17 from a pentium III (katmai) to a pentium 4 with i850 chipset. it boots and runs normal but the kernel reports "CPU: Intel 00/00 stepping 0a" and also it say "Kernel 2.2.17 on an i?86".... is this normal? or very abnormal? is it just okay? what could be done so it can detect pentium 4?

I remember this one. Intel did something funny with the series numbers with the pentium 4 which confused the Linux kernels of the time... which matches up to late 2.2 series. I'm certain there is a patch for it somewhere on kernel.org, but what's stopping you from jumping to the 2.4s?

Cheers,

thanks for the info!

i'll try finding a patch. i'll soon reinstall completely into 2.4.x. i'm just trying if i can migrate to pentium 4 my existing harddisks installed and configured with 2.2.x kernels. if i can make it work with pentium 4 i can save some time while installing and configuring new harddisks with 2.4.x kernel.
