I have updated the BIOS, the Smart start for Compaq, and followed everything Compaq said to install linux,and tried other OS's also trying to get one that will accept Owl. Now I am getting an error on boot up (nothing installed except compaqs controller software) the error "<0>Kernal Panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!" "In idle task - not syncing" then it just sets there. other times I got it to boot from the CD then it won't do anything from there no fdisk etc. I can start "settle" Randy Greif -----Original Message----- From: Solar Designer [mailto:solar@...nwall.com] Sent: Tuesday, February 14, 2006 9:06 AM To: owl-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Re: [owl-users] Owl and Intel 64 bit Xeon On Tue, Feb 14, 2006 at 08:54:51PM +0700, Ihsan wrote: > I plan to upgrade one of my server to Intel 64 bit Xeon platform. > Can Owl Linux run on Intel 64 bit Xeon processor? Yes - but in 32-bit mode. We're likely to work on implementing native x86-64 support for Owl after the 2.0 release. > Are there any tips and tricks?
