relative to to CentOS 5.2:


Does CentOS 5.2 support Nehalem based CPUs? CentOS 5.2 is based on RHEL 5.2
and Redhat said, only RHEL 5.3 supports the new Nehalem CPUs?

CentOS 4.6 doesn't, but CentOS 5.2 does in our initial testing.  Haven't
tried fedora/ubuntu/debian because they aren't part of our standard
offering.  Haven't tried RHEL 4.7 just yet to see if it's supported.

 

Our generic kernel for a RAM based image did work (based on 2.6.26)  So it's
only a minor change it seems, just the drivers have to know about the new
hardware id.

 

Hope this helps (sorry for the top-post)

has anyone had the pleasure yet of trying to install a bunch of linux
versions on these boxes (ones that arent supported)

 

such as CentOS 3, 4,5 Fedora 8,9,10, Ubuntu, Debian etc?

 

My only concern is the NIC going from a 5708 to a 5709
