E6750( 32 or 64bit), nVidia GeForce 8600 GT (beryl compatible ?)
I have just upgraded to
CPU - (i686) Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo E6750 @ 2.6Ghz
Graphics - nVidia GeForce 8600 GT
Motherboard - Gigabyte S series GA-P35-DS3L
I'm interested in music software so I went to '64 Studio' only to be confused at the choices (only 'i386 or AMD64'). I was told that either 'i386' or 'AMD64' should run on 'Intel E6750'.
However, I have attempted to install Debian Etch, only to have it fail at the point of trying to load an AMD64 kernel. Various other distros have also failed to install and most seem to fail when trying to talk to the graphics card, though I've had other errors.
I can run Knoppix 5.11 but it won't attempt beryl when I select that option.
I have googled but can't find any specific information on the nVidia Geforce 8600 GT, or what an E6750 will run with regard to 32bit, 64bit, i386, i686, AMD64
On the Debian site it states they support
Alpha, AMD64, ARM, HP PA-RISC, Intel x86, Intel IA-64,
MIPS (big endian), MIPS (little endian), PowerPC
IBM S/390, SPARC
Which one of these do I classify an E6750 as ?
Does anyone know where I can find this sort of information
