hi, question appear to be too obvious, i guess maybe i just wasn't sure and i'd like to hear more opinion about it heheh.
what's the diff between i586 or i686 vs Pentium option, when building kernel?
the kernel i'm using: 2.4.16 come with i586 default. i recompiled with option Pentium III enable, so far i haven't find any different yet.
i actually sit there and clock the boot time myself, its about the same...not any faster or slower.
maybe the differences is so little to the point that i don't notice? but i just like to know in "theory"... what's diff between kernel i586 processor enable vs kernel pentium processor enable, when you are running P III 600 mhz processor yourself?
