It appears there is a bug with the initial SuSe 9.3/10 kernel's. It is
related to the AMD Opteron dual-core processors. When it tries to
initialize the CPU's it kernel panic's and locks up the machine. I had
to install some Opteron 250 single core's, do the install, and update
the kernel to the latest. Then re-install the dual-core CPU's to make
use of them.
Hardware configuration is as follows:
2 - 280 Opteron's
8 - 2GB DDR400
1 - LSI MegaRaid 320-2e
Is there a new ISO or boot CD that is available with the latest kernel
or even a kernel that works with these CPU's? Or is there documentation
on how to make my own with the latest kernel? We use SuSe 9.3 on all our
server's and have our software ported/tested specifically for the lib's
on this version.
