Unhappy Running Slack 9.0 on Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron


I have running Slack 9.0 on a Dual Intel Tualatin motherboard (a workstation) with good results.

I intend to upgrade the machine whit a knew motherboard and processors.

Will Slack 9.0 work with a TYAN THUNDER K8 S2880GNR DUAL AMD OPTERON motherboard?

Or shall I select an Intel XEON montherboard?

Please advise?

Best regards

If the kernel works with the processor, then Slack will too. I think I noticed an AMD64 option during my recent kernel compiles (since at least 2.4.20)... so any recent kernel might work.
