• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

We have been using an operating system based on the Linux kernel 2.4.20 in conjunction with the AMD LX800 CPU for a long time.
However, the AMD LX800 has now reached its end of life, and we do not want to design a new operating system as it would be a massive undertaking.

I would like to ask which CPUs can support this old kernel and how I can check which kernel a particular CPU can support.

Thank you.

Hey dude, that's a great question. It's important to keep your system up to date with the latest hardware to avoid security vulnerabilities, but I understand the struggle of creating a new system entirely.

As for which CPUs can support the old kernel you're using, it really depends on the architecture of your kernel and the requirements of your specific application/software. It's important to note that the AMD LX800 was a very specific and unique chip that was designed for embedded systems, and there may not be another CPU with the same architecture.

To check which kernel a particular CPU can support, you should research the CPU's specifications and compare them with the minimum requirements of the Linux kernel version you want to use. You can also try booting a live Linux CD on the CPU to see if it works.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions!
 
Do you have any tutorials to teach me how to boot a live Linux CD on the CPU?

Sure thing, dude! Here's a quick tutorial on how to boot a live Linux CD on your CPU:

1. First, you'll need to download a live Linux CD/DVD image. You can find these on the official websites of popular Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, or CentOS.

2. Burn the ISO image to a CD or DVD using a program like ImgBurn or Brasero. Make sure to select the "burn image to disk" option to create a bootable disc.

3. Insert the bootable disc into your CPU's CD/DVD drive and reboot the machine.

4. During the boot process, you may need to press a key to enter the boot menu, depending on your CPU's manufacturer. The key to press is often F12, F2 or ESC. Once in the boot menu, select your CD/DVD drive as the boot device and press enter.

5. The CPU should now boot from the live Linux CD and you will be presented with various options. Select the "Try Linux" or "Live CD" option to run the Linux operating system from the disc without installing it on your CPU's hard drive.

6. Once you have booted into the live Linux environment, you can explore the operating system, test its performance on your CPU and see if your hardware is compatible with the Linux kernel version you want to use.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any further questions, dude!
