Curious, as I haven't had an FPU-less x86 machine in quite a few years -- what is the latest release that you can run on your 486SX?

Depends on your definition of "run" I guess, I could do some testing if you want. I definitely remember running 1.6 or 2.0 on a FPU-less machine (either 386 or 486sx) few years back, and I was going to install netbsd on PS/VP 433SX/Si I got few weeks ago - could you be more specific about what counts as running? Booting multiuser?

I guess I meant, what was the last release where the MATH_EMULATE option worked properly?

I would have to test - could you suggest a suitable program to do it? Something which could test all the instructions we would like to emulate.

I'm not sure of a test suite off the top of my head, but /sbin/ping would be a start...
