I read the i586 processor is no longer supported in FC12.
I don't know what the i486, i586 and i686 mean... Intel goes by Pentium xxxx. I have a Pentium 4 2.2GHz processor, is this supported????

How do I go about removing the old f11 rpm stuff after an upgrade? I have several packages from fc11 that are newer than what is on the fc12 (probably because of updates), so several things still show up as fc11. Why isn't the fc12 updated at least to the newest or newer stuff in fc11?
I have been having trouble with firefox3.5 on my x86_64 FC11 install for a month now...firefox freezes my pc. So I used yum to remove firefox. Now I'm wondering if I could just use another rpm for firefox...could I use the 32 bit version safely? I found the rpm and started doing a local install with yum but it wants these dependencies:
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)
I have an Aldi PC with a Q8200 processor and have installed Fedora11 on this system. Regularly I get updates to install, but also updates for i586 packages, which give a conflict with the x86_64 packages already installed.
Sometimes I have missed a i586 package in the update list, resulting in an error next time.
Up for review today on Phoronix is the Pentium G3258, the new processor Intel put out in celebration of their Pentium brand turning 20 years old. This new Pentium G3258 processor costs under $100 USD and comes unlocked for offering quite a bit overclocking potential while this Pentium CPU can be used by current Intel 8 and 9 Series Chipsets.
The fine folks over at Legit Reviews are putting the new K-series Pentium dual core processor through its paces. This is the first multiplier unlocked "low end" processor that we have seen for a long time from Intel. Legit managed a healthy 4.8GHz overclocked speed on this $65 which has a 3.2GHz base clock.
