Is it possible to compile an Ubuntu Kernel for sources for an i586 processor after Maverick (10.10)? I found this note  here, that indicates that it is possible.
Which option(s) in the .config file should one then enable to compile a newer Ubuntu kernel without cmov (and cx8?) support? Would selection a 486 type processor be all that's needed?
I'm currently running 10.04 on a Vortex processor for thin clients, so if there is a way to use a newer version I'd like to explore it.
