   Since you most definitely aren't on ppc64, I would regard it as "well, it 
might work".  Of course, pretending to be on a 486 isn't particularly common, 
so maybe that is the trigger.

   I did wonder if a recent kernel might be involved (I had to used 2.6.15-rc or 
newer on my ppc64, despite the warnings that udev ought to be upgraded), but 
apparently not.
