Debian Buster i386: CPU is going to die?! :(

Postby GabrieleMax » 2020-06-14 12:21

Hi guys!

At startup my Debian Buster i386 shows:

[ 8.167514] Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M

But after few seconds the system goes up and works... is the processor (AMD Athlon 800) close to die?

Have you installed the amd64-microcode package?

This is an AMD Athlon 800Mhz, it's a 32bit processor...

Hey, aren't you the person with the ancient computers?

Floppy drive?

You cannot be serious!

Yes, my 2004 laptop whines about going too slow among other things when it boots up, but like yours, it gets there eventually.

If my 2004 laptop has a cd/dvd drive and no floppy, how old must yours be with just a floppy.

No microcode, macrocode or Davinci Code is going to help.

Your computers need to go to their final boot up in Silicon Heaven.
There's no drama in my sid......

I think this is the package amd64-microcode_3.20191218.1_i386.deb (I did Bullseye update) but... why the package's name is am64 and not amd32?

I have two Abit KT7A raid, one with Athlon 800Mhz and another one with athlon 1200Mhz, both with 1,5gb ram, both with floppy drive, both are running Samba, OpenVPN, MariaDB, Vsftpd obviously without desktop and they work fine, now I don't need other power! :)

Still, that package is only for AMD64 processors.

Ah yes, of course, for people who have installed an i386 system but have a 64-bit processor. Thanks p.H and sorry to the OP.
