    Fine :), My (12 year old) 486DX2 already don't need Math-emu. I just
    don't see how in a computer like that will be installed a kernel 2.6 .
    So why code of math-emu isn't dropped ?

    Btw I try install a kernel 2.4 in my DX2 and works but very very slow .
    I think in this type of computer should be install a kernel 2.2 .

    Thanks,
