When trying to boot the Fedora 8 live CD I get the following message:
This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU:
What does this mean (in human terms please)? The computer has Fedora 7 installed and it boots fine.
All that I can figure out from my research is that the kernel does some feature checking prior to boot up. There is an 8 32-bit word array of features. What the message is saying is that the feature indicated by the 16th bit of the first word of this array is missing. But I can't find anything on the net to indicate what the bits in the array mean.
Any help wold be appreciated.
