    SubjectK6 sig11 Bug detection.
    Hi,

    I have a Debian based system with a custom 2.4.7 kernel compiled with
    gcc version 2.95.4 20010703 (Debian prerelease)
    (also saw the same with 2.2.10+ gcc 2.95)

    The CPU in the machine is a AMD K6 200MHz, and has 64MB of SDRAM

    I reomved the heatsink and the serial is Cxxxxxxxx, however in the
    kernel boot messages I get the following,

    Aug 17 09:06:49 phoenix kernel: CPU: Before vendor init, caps: 008001bf
    008005bf 00000000, vendor = 2
    Aug 17 09:06:49 phoenix kernel: AMD K6 stepping B detected - <6>K6 BUG

    Aug 17 09:06:49 phoenix kernel: AMD K6 stepping B detected - probably OK
    (after B9730xxxx).

    Aug 17 09:06:49 phoenix kernel: CPU: After generic, caps: 008001bf

    Aug 17 09:06:49 phoenix kernel: CPU: Common caps: 008001bf

    Aug 17 09:06:49 phoenix kernel: CPU: AMD-K6tm w/ multimedia extensions
    stepping 01

    Is the stepping not the first part of the serial? I have 64MB (the
    amount that triggers the bug IIRC) in the system and the the kernel and
    everything else compiles without generating a SIG11.

    Is this a false detection or would it be possible that I have a wrongly
    tagged CPU?

    Also the link http://www.mygale.com/~poulot/k6bug.html does not exist.

    Please CC replies to me as I am not on the list.

    Regards,

    /James
