Hi, I'm interested in building a new system based on an AMD x2 5400 and a Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5
motherboard and 2 or so gig of ram. I plan to upgrade my previous dual cpu system running 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5smp and plan to use it again and or CentOs 4.4.
I have read to bits,trying to find information on compatibility issues.
I gave up on Asus after reading an article whcih confirmed they "weren't interested" in open source hardware issues for Linux so I found that Gigabyte does.
Check out this interesting story if you like
"pardon to the author for lifting this link"
And I am hoping rather than throwing in the towel and check to see if anybody knows a liddle more.
I am trying to find out if the motherboard of my desires ..or wallet will run out of the box and any issues i might have before I start.. I realize it might be a lofty ask.. but
My main work is home hobby video/telecine dvd's etc. and small time slide processing
anybody out there willing to help
Thank you in advance
