To any concerned:
I recently upgraded from 9.3 to 10.1. For some reason, my machine became
unstable under load. It would hang and I'd have to hard boot. I never had
problems with 9.3.
My system is a:
MSI K8T800 Master2 FAR
NVidia 5900 Ultra
3 HDs (2x SATA, 1 IDE)
and usual accessories
I thought it could be a power supply problem, but I have an Antec TruePower
430, so that shouldn't be the case. But, to test it, I removed two of the 4
hard drives and that still didn't help.
Then, I salvaged a NIC (3COM) from an old machine and turned off the on-board
NIC. That DID seem to solve the problem.
So, if you run into similar problems on an MSI K8T800 Master2 FAR, you might
want to try that $4 NIC collecting dust in your closet.
P.S.: Kudos to the SuSe team for a great distro -- great work!
I bought this Suse 10.1 and I am using this for specialised computational biology work. I have a 2x dual core opteron processor (in total 4 opterons!) loaded ona K8N-DL mother board which can support upto 24 GB memory. I am currently working with 4GB RAM. I want to know if I can put 24 GB RAM and whether Suse 10.1 can handle this much of RAM.
