Re: is there a linux-image-2.6.17-x-amd64-k8?

Specifically, I should add, we have detected a bug in mpqc2.31, unable - with 
large complex molecules - to build correctly the hessian in internal 
coordinates, reading cartesian coordinates. We turned to cartesian 
coordinates throughout, which is less efficicient.
Now I wonder whether instead of a bug in mpqc it could be a problem of the 
kernel (just a naive doubt, possibly devoid of any scientific ground). I was 
using 2.6.15.-1 k8 smp.

No major difference to all purposes? In particular, using the system for 
computation (mpqc2.3.1) without X, aimed at the highest possible floating 

I am just reinstalling amd64 on dual opteron (hope the old net installer - 19 
July - works; the newest does not, as I have reported. Therefore, I am 
interested in replacing the generic kernel that has been just installed.
