I think the problem is libc related, somewhere in name resolution. The CPU does suffer from the popd bug.. here is dmesg Linux version 2.2.5-15 (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release) ) #1 Mon Apr 19 21:39:28 EDT 1999 Console: colour VGA+ 80x25 Calibrating delay loop... 7.94 BogoMIPS Memory: 14648k/16640k available (1060k kernel code, 412k reserved, 460k data, 60k init) Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode...

The asm command which appears to cause the problem is the bswap %edi
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-18 18:45:59 UTC
Yup. If you grab the latest bind-utils from Raw Hide it should be fixed. The compiler was outputting 486+ instructions when it shouldn't have.
