http://forums.fedoraforum.org – From the release note: Code: 3.1. 32-bit base changed to i686 Fedora 11 had i586 as the base 32-bit x86 architecture. For Fedora 12, we are switching to i686 as the base architecture (including CMOV), and improving support for Atom processors. This means we will lose support for the following CPU families: Intel i586 (all) National Semiconductor Geode processors VIA C3 (Ezra and Samuel Cores) AMD Geode GX AMD Geode LX (as used in the OLPC XO laptop) and later Geode NX processors should still work. Those interested are, of course, welcome to set up a secondary architecture for older processors. There is nothing saying about transmeta crusoe processor. So is there someone that know wether Transmeta Crusoe count as i586 or i686? I have Sony C1M Installed with Fedora 11, and it use i586 kernel ( I think it was automatically selected when I was install it). And none of the RPM of kernel install the i686 version. Here the /proc/cpuinfo Code: processor        : 0 vendor_id        : GenuineTMx86 cpu family        : 5 model                : 4 model name        : Transmeta(tm) Crusoe(tm) Processor TM5800 stepping        : 3 cpu MHz                : 860.067 cache size        : 512 KB fdiv_bug        : no hlt_bug                : no f00f_bug        : no coma_bug        : no fpu                : yes fpu_exception        : yes cpuid level        : 1 wp                : yes flags                : fpu vme de pse tsc msr cx8 cmov mmx longrun lrti constant_tsc up bogomips        : 1720.13 clflush size        : 32 power management: There is flag cmov, hoping It still can use the i686 kernel in F12. If not then it will be stay on F11, and may be someone can update the release note adding the information of Transmeta Crusoe with the other i586, Geode and Via C3 (HowTos)
