    Which is the oldest linux kernel version which i can compile safely in an Intel x86 platform (i686) ?? I plan to compile it and then run it using an Emulator like QEMU..

    I tried to compile kernel v1.0 however it shows an unknown processor family error :(

    I need to study the kernel sources (process management, scheduling etc..) in detail for an Operating Systems course at my college..
    please help

    I think this will become a trial and error thing...
    I'd try 2.0 and 2.2 first.
