Re: cpuinfo: flags meant

Good question that ?!

Why dont you post the /proc/cpuinfo from the system you are inquiring for with the entry's that are a problem, and perhaps reply's here can try and answer them all!, this way we can help you out and learn in the process, I for one do not know what they all stand for, but am willing to try and dig them out.

Here is already some explaination

I have already shopped around and found the above also it seem's that there is no doc lying around for cpuinfo.

Hi,

If you have kernel sources, you can look at arch/i386/kernel/setup.c and include/asm-i386/cpufeature.h. In the last there are some comments abbout the meaning of each flag.
