AMD64 port or not, which way to go?
Hi all AMD64 experts,
We are in process of building new LAMP server for, i quess, quite typical usage, so nothing fancy there.
I've been browsing through AMD64 mailing list as well as some other Debian lists and info pages to find out is AMD64 port way to go or is it maybe Sarge intel x86 architecture. Or perhaps some other distro altogether but i do really want to use Debian :-) so let's leave that aside.
Questions i've seeked answer's, and partially got them, are:
- HW compatibility, server specs: Dell PowerEdge 2800, single Xeon 3.2GHz/1MB 800FSB, 2x 1GB ram, PERC 4/di raid controller, PV100T 36/72GB DAT 7, 2x 73 GB SCSI Ultra320 hd, ups
- Pros and cons using AMD64 port (for production server)
- Pros and cons using Sarge (on our present server we are using Woody, with few backported packages)
Quite broad scope, i know but any comments, experiences or thoughts around these questions would be very well appreciated!
