Where did you get your case for the MB? I didn't realize (didn't check) that they're the new E-ATX form factor, so I thought one of my old ATX cases would work, but alas. . .

The mobo I got (RioWorks HDAMB) is ATX. However, like all Opteron boards it requires an EPS (24+8 pin) power supply, which you will almost certainly need to buy seperately.

On the Red Hat FTP site there is a beta for a variant of Enterprise server called "Tarhoon" that has a beta for AMD64...haven't had much luck with it though...

Moses, you still working on porting slackware to x86_64? I've been working on the same thing, but have been having some problems as well... want to put heads together and see what we can turn up? Let me know...

I'm still working on it, but haven't had time to really make it work.
The major problem I was having last time I worked on it was getting a driver for the Gb ethernet card on the mother board (so I didn't have to sit in the 40 degree F computer room while working on this).
I plan on getting back to it soon. I've got a link (somewhere, I'll find it and post it) for a Mandrake 64 bit version that I may be able to use to compile Slackware (I've really found nothing that compares to Slack). The Suse beta install failed miserably and I need to try something else. . . Maybe the MDK install will work better.

well I've gotten slackware up and running on a 64 bit kernel using the SuSE cross compiler rpms. I wouldn't bother with mandrake, I already went that route (spent about a week)... a lot of people told me that its a bad system to do devel on... I'll agree after experiencing some strange header related errors that I couldn't make go away. It works fine as a workstation (have ~10 machines using it right now) but I had problems getting a toolchain to compile correctly. Right now I'm going to compile a native gcc and glibc and binutils and then I should be good to go to make slack packages. So do you want to work together on this? IM me if you do.

I'd be happy to work together, but I'm not really consistently available right now. I've been really busy with trying to finish my thesis (well, I'm starting to write the thesis, so it'll be a while before I'm close to finishing), keep track of my kid, and get work done. So, I'd love to (and need to, for work) get Slack compiled on x86_64, but I can't promise that I would be a very helpful partner.
Having said that, if we set up some sort of weekly meeting time (IM meeting or maybe email would work better since that's more of a consistent thing in my life right now), maybe that'll make sure I actually get to work on this. . .

I haven't tried this yet, but I hear the Gentoo Live CDs may be a good place to start with compiling everything for the Opteron. . . I'll be installing Slack 9.1 32bit in the next few weeks, making sure the gcc will compile 64 bit code and trying to compile gentoo on my box. I'll let you know how that goes. . .
