0kb cache pentium m


hello all;

Uh, when I cat /dev/cpuinfo, it shows that my processor has 0kb cache. Now a pentium m has 1024kb cache.

My question, does my laptop uses this cache? and why these invalid values?

I am not quiet sure

did the Kernel read all your hardware correctly??

check with your distribution if they support a driver for your processor

I just using linux to develop my C/C++ and Java applications.

I am just getting started into linux kernel. (I have a problem with my wireless card / Belkin 802.11b)

I think your a bit late...

the gentoo fora got the probable solution, you need a kernel higer than 2.4.22, so it is fixed in 2.4.23.

But have fun programming. (I also am a happy coder)
