I am about to buy a pentium machine for running NetBSD (and NetBSD alone).
I still have a few Intel Outside stickers left, so I'd like to get a non-
Intel CPU. ;-)
How good are the Cyrix and AMD CPU's? Are there any problems running NetBSD
on them? Any patches required? How about the speed? Heat problems? The
non-Intel versions seem to be much cheaper, so they're very interesting to
Any information greatly appreciated (maybe this info could be included on
a WWW page somewhere.. I'm sure many people would like to know).
