MMX kernel for VL
« on: December 19, 2008, 05:39:36 am »

hello all,

is there a linux MMX kernel in existence? either a VL MMX build or can a MMX kernel be transplanted in so to speak? thus allowing MMX cpu's to be fully utilised?
also how would it be chosen from boot?
Toshiba Tecra 520cdt (P166mmx,160mb ram, 40gb sata HD-  VL 5.9 Final (in progress)
Compaq DeskproEN (PIII733,384mb ram, 20gb HD) - Debian (knoppix 5.1)
Toshiba Tecra M3 - XP :(

That is already built in the kernel. Is there a problem?
