Semperon processors



Hi,

My old motherboard and processor bit the dust at the end of last week
and so I've fitted a Semperon (Athlon changed their x86 processor names
to Semperon - Aths are now all x64) on a Gigabyte GA7N400 board.

Now, if I have the processor set at 1GHz, it is recognised as an Athlon
and will boot happily. If I switch it to be the 2.4GHz Semperon that it
is, I get kernel panics and some very odd noises from the machine
itself.

Any ideas if there is a problem with Semperon processors and the kernel
or is there some way I can get around this with a boot line fix?

I'm on rawhide and the 1109 kernel.

TTFN
