Re: amd64 dualcore nad raid1
I use that exact board with the same setup. The RAID1 on it is not true
RAID, so I use the Linux Software RAID to set up two RAID1 arrays of 2
drives each (i need two separate physical arrays for my purposes).
It works well, and performance is good. Debian Sarge with the 2.6 kernel
detects all hardware nicely. I recommend that setup.

Do you think that mainboard Tyan Thunder S2877ANDF x 2 Dual Opteron under
debian testing/unstable provides adequate raid 1 support without going to
expensive 3ware products? I plan to have 2GB ram, but that is not enough for
the calculations and frequent access to disk occurs.
Remember that i am based in italy where the market is under rigid control by
whom you can easily imagine so that it is not easy to get what one wants (for
example main boards). i am happy when i meet a handler who follows my linux
requests, most do not.
thanks for answering
