I'm shopping. Does anyone know if FC-6 will install to make full, correct use of a new Dell workstation? Namely, will all of the hardware be utilized if run on one of the five cases:
1 quad-core processor, Core 2 quad (for example QX6700)
1 dual-core Xeon (for example Xeon 5160)
1 quad-core Xeon (for example Xeon E5345)
2 quad-core Xeon (for example 2 x E5345)
(Let's assume I can figure out graphics issues on my own for now)
There is a related note on this post
but it's not FC-specific. And, for the record, the Xeon entry at Wikipedia
is next to useless. I'm curious if the FC6 installer is smarter than I am when it comes to what is 64-bit and what is smp. I may end up running RHEL on the box.. but I'm familiar with FC so I thought I'd ask.
Thanks for reading
PS Dell does not appear to ship with _any_ flavor of LINUX installed now-a-days. Bummer.
