So I made the plunge. I installed a semi-recent Debian unstable
on a new dual Opteron 244 on a Tyan 2880 board and then
installed Bart's newest 64 bit kernel (2.4.23-pre5-amd64) and
some key 64 bit debs from Barts site. Things seem OK. I can
compile and run 64 bit apps just fine.
But now I'm having some problems with my 3Ware RAID card and
ext3 (and possible NFS). I believe they are kernel related
issues and want to post to LKML with them. But first, I wanted
to get a brief rundown on how recent or what x86-64 updates
have been applied to the 2.4.23-pre5 kernel. Is this using a
x86-64.org CVS kernel as base?
Thanks a bunch. You'll probably be seeing my name on the board
quite a bit in the weeks following...
