CONFIG_CLASSIC32: 6xx/7xx/74xx

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_CLASSIC32 has multiple definitions:

52xx/6xx/7xx/74xx found in arch/powerpc/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_CLASSIC32:

Help text

There are four families of PowerPC chips supported. The more common types (601, 603, 604, 740, 750, 7400), the Motorola embedded versions (821, 823, 850, 855, 860, 52xx, 82xx, 83xx), the AMCC embedded versions (403 and 405) and the high end 64 bit Power processors (POWER 3, POWER4, and IBM PPC970 also known as G5).

This option is the catch-all for 6xx types, including some of the embedded versions. Unless there is see an option for the specific chip family you are using, you want this option.

You do not want this if you are building a kernel for a 64 bit IBM RS/6000 or an Apple G5, choose 6xx.

If unsure, select this option

Note that the kernel runs in 32-bit mode even on 64-bit chips.

Unless you are building a kernel for one of the embedded processor systems, 64 bit IBM RS/6000 or an Apple G5, choose 6xx. Note that the kernel runs in 32-bit mode even on 64-bit chips.
