Debian Dropping Support for Older 32-bit Hardware Architectures

Source: ... chitecture-support/

Debian Development team announced on May 07, 2016. Stating that they are going to drop the older i386 architecture processor support on Debian 9 (stretch) release cycle. It was decided on last year to increase the minimum CPU features for the i386 architecture to 686-class. This means dropping support for 586-class and hybrid 586/686 processors.(Support for 486-class processors was dropped, somewhat accidentally, in squeeze.)

This was implemented in the Linux kernel packages starting with Linux 4.3, which was uploaded to unstable in December last year. gcc library of i386 has been changed recently to target 686-class processors which will crash other processors. Whoever running testing or unstable, they are advise to use jessie which will support until at least 2018, and until 2020 if i386 is included in jessie LTS.

The following processors, supported in jessie, are now unsupported.

  • AMD K5, K6, K6-2 (aka K6 3D), K6-3
  • DM&P/SiS Vortex86, Vortex86SX
  • Cyrix III, MediaGX, MediaGXm
  • IDT Winchip C6, Winchip 2
  • Intel Pentium, Pentium with MMX
  • Rise mP6
  • VIA C3 'Samuel 2', C3 'Ezra'

只係drop older 32-bit算係咁啦
RHEL一早變左64-bit only


如果一定要用 i386 啲 system,
個 system 真係會好勁, 無可代替,
唔知而家個太空站, 係用緊乜呢

好多i686 kernel都開左PAE, 會令好多雖然支援i686但係冇PAE既CPU都行唔到


kernel 可以自己 compile, s/w 唔 support 就唔得

時代巨輪, 不可逆轉
唔係玩古玩, 越舊越好


會唔會影響到 ubuntu?
好多NGO/學校/第三世界地方都係用啲舊機裝 ubuntu 頂下
exp. for dev / test

TOP ... -bit-support/229815

啲咁舊 h/w 都好難 main,
轉去 low cost arm 算
