Intel Corp. has asked computer makers to halt shipments of models powered by a 1.13 gigahertz version of its Pentium III chip because of problems in running some software. Under certain conditions, the chip doesn’t work properly with computers running programs based on the Linux operating system and Sysmark 2000, a performance-benchmarking program, according to a Dow Jones story.
