Can anyone recommend a good AMD (socket A2 - Athlon 64 X2) motherboard
that has good Linux support? I'm sending back my Shuttle to newegg and
need a replacement asap.
I'm running an Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe that has an AM2 socket. I have an
AMD Athlon64 3800+ in it. It will take 8 GB ram, 7 on-board SATA ports,
one eSATA port, 10 USB ports (6 for the front, 4 on the rear), firewire,
great sound, one IDE controller, one serial port. It has the board
connector for a Parallel port but the actual riser to take it to the
back panel costs more than a USB-LPT converter.
So far, everything works great on standard Debian Etch.
I also use Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe; AMD X2 4000 (EE series); 2GB RAM
installed, 500GB HDD on SATA. Works really nice - had no any problems
with installing and running the system - Debian Sid AMD64. The sound
system on the board is sufficient for me and works with ALSA, network
worked without problems - actually I installed the system over the
Internet. Passive cooling is a nice feature of the board (chipsets are
cooled with heatpipes).
