Unbelievable - pcc started in 70ties,
are working for near a half of a century?
Gosh ! Déjà vu or what !! Raised from the dead :) thanks for the heads-up.
I dont go quite that far back ! Just to DOS on a 286 a year or two before Windows3.11 was inflicted on    introduced to the world.

Back to topic :-

He also reported many other distros with recent kernels fail, options.
Yes, the latest Mint was one of them that failed.
I have just tried a Mint from 2015 and that boots ok,
lmde-2-201503-cinnamon-64bit.iso
( in fact I was using it to torrent (Transmission) an older Ubuntu, all was going well until it  ran out of disk space with 65MB to go in the 2.08 GB iso ! grrr )

So, we seem to have determined that it is not a TinyCore problem -it is more widespread.
so this isnt really on topic any more is it :)

Not sure what to do next, one of the famous attributes of Linux is its ability to run on older systems :(
And its ability to make small USB recovery drives ( to rescue Win**s et al !) perhaps I should go looking at those ?
Surely I can not be the only one in the world to have an old PC that isnt now supported ? !

Thanks to you all for sorting me out, at least I can run some Linux and have not (yet ! )  run away tearing my hair out, lol!

Hi thl04
Googling for:
Code: [Select]
kernel panic hp compaq dc5800suggests you need a BIOS update due to a kernel regression that occurred somewhere around 4.13 or 4.14

This bug report shows several people with your hardware experiencing the same problem and solving it with a BIOS update:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1520265

The bug report also links to:
https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Trying-to-update-the-bios-on-dc-5800-mt/m-p/5746185#M134271
which provides a  DOS Flash.zip  file and instructions for updating your BIOS.

Or you can try finding what you need at the HP website to update your BIOS to version 1.60.

Hi, Rich!
Interesting and somewhat unpleasant information on the kernel regressions. Hope that your advice will help thl04.
Ducking the kernel regressions information, i met one topic on arch bbs, discussing some bug around 4.13 kernel concerning input-output specific MMU operation. Guys fight the issue booting with intel_iommu=off parameter. From your point of view can it be usefull for thl04 trouble healing?

It's hard to say. I haven't seen anything that nails down the exact nature of the problem. I read that someone got rid of the kernel
panic with the  acpi=off nolapic noapic  boot codes. I had suggest that to thl04 several days ago but it didn't work for him. I think
someone else said just using  acpi=off  fixed it for them. The dmesg from the 4.8 kernel shows this:
Code: [Select]
PCI: Using host bridge windows from ACPI; if necessary, use "pci=nocrs" and report a bug
ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (domain 0000 [bus 00-ff])
acpi PNP0A08:00: _OSC: OS supports [ExtendedConfig ASPM ClockPM Segments MSI]
ACPI BIOS Error (bug): \_SB.PCI0._OSC: Excess arguments - ASL declared 5, ACPI requires 4 (20160422/nsarguments-189)
ACPI Error: [CAPD] Namespace lookup failure, AE_ALREADY_EXISTS (20160422/dsfield-211)
ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SB.PCI0._OSC] (Node f4c1dc30), AE_ALREADY_EXISTS (20160422/psparse-542)
acpi PNP0A08:00: _OSC failed (AE_ALREADY_EXISTS); disabling ASPM
acpi PNP0A08:00: [Firmware Info]: MMCONFIG for domain 0000 [bus 00-3f] only partially covers this bridge
It's possible the later kernels are less tolerant of these errors.
