gdb assembly dump


im following a tutorial that requires analyzing gdb assembly dump output. however, it says my box is configured for i386 and the tutorial is on an i586. is there a way i can change it to i586 so i can follow the tutorial accordingly?

thanks in advance for the response. =]

if i read this right, you need to re-compile your kernel, adding in support for your correct processor

actually, it shouldn't matter, come to think of it. after the 386, there's really no difference in assembly other than improvement of instructions (i.e. less clock cycles). stick with what you have, it won't hinder your learning

Don't think that's true

There are "pentium" instructions, extension instructions as well for later processors too. 486 instructions even (such as CMPXCHG Compare and Exchange), no good for 386. I'd recompile the kernel.
