I am a little nervous about that. I have scanned the last few
this list - there does not seem to be any problem in principle with
getting amd64-k8-smp itself going, only with drivers or packages to go
with it. Is there no data point for Sarge on such a system? The
are bundling Red Hat and Suse licenses.
I hope to get help on this list if I can't get all the wheels to turn.
In return, I will certainly share all the trials and tribulations of
such an adventure.
We're currently trying Debian on an HP blade server with quad dual-
core Opteron CPUs. I haven't heard any howls of pain from my
colleagues yet - it just seems to work, at a first impression.
