I dont know if the kernel will boot on the SP2 switch, did you already
No, we haven't tried it. The only pSeries boxes I have access to are in
fulltime production mode.
I'd've guessed that SuSe would boot, but would ignore the SP2 switch.
Is there some reason why the kernel shouldn't boot on a system with an
SMP support on pSeries? Is it up to handling 32 CPU's well
It appers to work well with > 32 cpus in SLES9.
One of the
reasons the guy with the grant money for this compute cluster
wanted AIX, was for the AIX compilers - so I need to ask: Will SuSe for
pSeries be able to use xlc/xlC/xlf/xlf90/xlf95 and such?
There are xlc products available, from IBM.
