Hi, I am thinking of setting up a web server using AMD Opteron 2000 series processors and compatible motherboards. Does anyone have a working system with AMD Opteron proce... [by webbie_colt]
I experienced core dumps (Illegal Instruction) on 2 new Opteron 2-way 6274 systems while using XEN 4.1.2.
I could make following observations in different configurations:
2x Opteron 6274: Ubuntu Precise w/o XEN = WORKING
2x Opteron 6274: Ubuntu Precise + XEN 4.1.2 = NOT working
2x Opteron 6274: Ubuntu Oneiric + XEN 4.1.1 = WORKING
2x Opteron 6274: Fedora 16 + XEN 4.1.2 + Kernel 3.1 = WORK
So I've been looking but not found any real cheap 6/8 core Opteron 4200 series processors. Going into a build I'm starting and am looking to see if anyone knows where to source them on the cheap. Would love to go to 4300 series but the mobo doesn''t support them :mad:
AMD has released a range of quad-core, 8-core, 12-core and 16-core processors featuring its second-generation 'Piledriver' modular core architecture which are designed as a drop-in replacement for 'Bulldozer' Opteron parts.
