segfaults after upgrading cpu
I'm no expert on such matters but I would say yes, it could cause problems. You may need to recompile at least your kernel with the new CPU, it more than likely has different instruction sets and optimization flags.
If you built the kernel yourself and specified the name of your old processor, then you certainly need to rebuild it. I'm not so sure about stock kernels; I think the standard linux-image-686 kernel should run on any pentium equivalent. Certainly if you go to the Debian packages site and search for kernels with the keyword "athlon xp", the standard stock kernels come up."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"
