    kernal newbie question

    If i compile a vanilla kernel from source on my i686(actually K7) PC , will i get a i686 kernel ?

    The packages from are for i386 .
    Will this packages work fine on a i686 kernel ?
    The whole world is a cyclone. But once you have found the center, the cyclone disappears. This nothingness is the ultimate peak of consciousness.

    Yes they will. i686 is backward compatible with i386.
