Re: [tlug] AMD 64 Bit

I Have 2 System running Linux on 64 bit. hand made
2 x Asus A8N SLI Premium
AMD64 X2 3800+ and 4400+
Check it
And work well with new kernel 2.6.13 gentoo-sources pure 64bit
I had some problem but all was fixed.
Problems Internal timer was fixed wit passing to kernel in grub "notsc"
or "noapictimer" check
Problem with forcedeth nForce NET driver was fixed with Kernel patches
All works fine powernow scaling, sensors with lm_sensors and no problem
with compilation for any source even I use agresive CFLAG for my system.
CFLAGS="-march=k8 -O3 -pipe -funroll-all-loops -fpeel-loops -ftracer
-ffast-math -mfpmath=sse -msse3 -fforce-addr"
GCC 3.4.4
For laptop AMD64 Turion is a god choice.
Check some tests:
