Question processor family unknown


maybe this has already been posted but i didn't find it

i want to find out my processor family in order to compile a new kernel.

this are the most logical choices i can think of:
- Pentium-II/Celeron(pre-Coppermine)
- Pentium-III/Celeron(Coppermine)/Pentium-III Xeon
- Pentium-4/Celeron(P4-based)/Pentium-4 M/older Xeon

this is it's page from the intel website:
http://ark.intel.com/cpu.aspx?groupId=34439

this is what get when i "cat /proc/cpuinfo" :

processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 22
model name : Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 560 @ 2.13GHz
stepping : 1
cpu MHz : 2128.191
cache size : 1024 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 10
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss tm pbe nx lm constant_tsc up pni monitor ds_cpl tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr lahf_lm
bogomips : 4262.65

It would probably fit best in that category of the choices you've listed.

You can google.

I found it by looking for Celeron 560. It is the limited edition of a P4.

cpuinfo tells you enough to find it.

http://pc.pcconnection.com/1/1/15651...x80537560.html

If you want information on any hardware, look for the model name and number and google, then look for more specifications information and google some more until you are sure what things are.

I read it.

I read what you posted but don't understand what more information you require. The 560 is one of a line of single-core process for laptops based on Intels latest core technology. Look a little towards the bottom in this first article for the 560 under "Merom-1024" and then see the article on the core thereafter, where it is mentioned with more information a little above.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ge.2C_65_nm.29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_C...cture#Desktops

You might be a little more detailed in what information is required for the kernel you wish to compile. As mentioned, of the three choices, it is closet to the last, P4, though its technology dates about ten years later. Intel now says the 560 is in the Celeron family, as you will see in the link in your first post

i still don't get it how you deduced it's in p4 and not the others. i deduced from the same articles its very similar with pentium M.

anyways ... i compiled it with every option and it worked, wich i find it weird. i don't know how it will behave if i try to do some advanced operations.

By age...

If you look at the first Wikipedia article, you will see that the release date of the 560 was 30 Dec.2007. The Pentium II and III are before the P4 and much older. Indeed the 560 is designated an M model, for laptops, but Intel has used M for several successive processors just as it has used the name Celeron for more than one.

Congratulations on your efforts. I would suspect that you can concentrate on variables that are contemporary with the 560s release date, and omit what are clearly legacy provisions.
