Re: Problems with Duron Procesor

Let me confirm to you that AMD Durons from 700-1.1G work perfectly with
Kernel 2.2.19 and 2.4.16.

We have over 10 such boxes running 2.4.16 and they are all rock solid.
Faster than the PIII and P4 boxes.

So whatever is going down, it is your motherboard, heatsink, something.
Just a reminder... Durons run EXTREMELY hot compared to PIII... we've
fried a few AMD CPUs due to the CPU fan either going too slow or stopping.
So use only high quality ball-bearing fans on them.

As for motherboards, we use only top quality ones from either ASUS or
Magic-Pro. Avoid using cheapo ones.

Try testing the RAM using "memtest" or something. that might help you.

Anyway, thats my 2 cents. Hope that helps you isolate the problem.
