Re: Semperon processors



What kind of odd noises, and how do you think they relate to the problem?  If your computer makes funny noises at a higher clock speed it suggests a hardware problem more than something in the kernel ( or at least based on the details you have supplied ).

In the case that you don't believe that it is a Hardware problem, have you tried booting something else?  For example a Linux bood CD, windows install CD or something else to see what kind of result that produces.

If there was a problem with the kernel, you would expect to find it at all clock speeds.

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
