Subjectpre2.0.6 and pre2.0.7 won't boot on 386
hello there,

has anybody else tried to run pre2.0.6 or pre2.0.7 on a 386 without Math-CoPro
?

On my good old 386 (AMD,40 Mhz, 8 Mb RAM) -- whrere 1.3.98 ran well --
pre2.0.6 and pre2.0.7 hang at boot-time.

Everything seems to be fine until the message:

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.

is displayed. then after about 30 seconds ( this takes about 2 seconds
with 1.3.98 )

INIT: version 2.57b booting

is displayed, and that's it, i have to press RESET to reboot.

Clearly, nothing is written to the logs, so i don't know how to give more
information what causes the failure.
I'm using libc-5.3.12 and libm-5.0.6, and, of course,
the kernel was compiled with

CONFIG_MATH_EMULATION=y
CONFIG_M386=y
