View Full Version : i686

Will the release version of the netbook remix be built for i686 kernal and have i686 packages?

I'm guessing not - but there seems to be 0 point in having a distribution supposedly dedicated to netbooks if it doesn't maximise the potential of these low end machines, by at least compiling them for the "right" processor level. Making this an i386 distribution seems bizarre in the extreme. Calling it "netbook optimised" with an x86 distribution seems legally dubious! (joke!)

use arch or gentoo, then you can build it how you want.

You could use lpia (low power intel architecture) if your netbook has an Atom.
