Sorry. I just hit Reply in Gmail and accepted the default. I didn't
realise it wasn't pointing at the list. My bad - I ought to have
checked. Apologies.

Thanks for the hint!

I am /astonished/ at the poor decision-making of whoever thought that
making a 686-only kernel the default was suitable. I am even more
concerned that there were no warnings concerning this. This is
/extremely/ bad planning and someone richly deserves a slap.

The defaults for any computer should be fail-safe: to work, not to
tune for performance but fail on some systems. This is an idiotic,
beginner-level mistake, and in my several months on this list, I
recall no discussion about it.
