I've dual E5520 server w/Supermicro X8DTI mobo (last June 2009 1.0c bios version).
Default OpenSuSE 11.1 x86-64 kernel (220.127.116.11-9) gives an error in /sys/devices/system/node directory - there is node0 and node2 subdirectories instead of node0 and node1 (smt is turned off). As a result numactl tools don't work.
I don't find the message about this error in SuSE bugzilla "database".
This Nehalem/NUMA error is also known (AFAIK) for 2.6.29-6 default OpenSuSE kernel, and also in FC11 kernel 2.6.29, and in some CentOS 2.6 kernel; but there are kernels w/o this error :-)
Is there some updated OpenSuSE 11.1 kernels w/o this error ? Or may be some OpenSuSE 11.2 kernels ?
