Default Help with Cyrix/K6 PentiumIII


Hi there.

Please help.
I have a system with Cyrix MII pr300,
where it is no way to unpack bz2 archive.
At some section it counts bad CRC.

When I obtained newer motherboard with Celleron, problem,
was dissolved.

But I had to return to my old processor and motherboard
same was with K6-2.

Sometimes problems happens with mp3, it jumps between slots.

What is that?
And why does it go?

Run a memory test such as memtest86+ and I bet you have memory issues. I
have that CPU and it works perfectly (eventually). You don't have an
i686 version of bzip2 running, do you? I suggest you compile from source
and try again if so.

Passed, I have it on rescue CD.
At least first pass of testes.

Well, I have a kernel compiled for 386 (RedHat 6.0)
And the latest OpenBSD i386 (Which, it seams, does not compiles for 686 at all)

Compiled with make
and came with standard installations of OpenBSD 4.0

It does not work.

What exactly processor do you have?

May be all the defect processors of the National Semiconductors and the AMD
came in this debilous police militarized country.
It seams they want more.
