General :: Migrating To 64bit Quad Core System

Mar 11, 2010

In the past, I've deployed new 64 bit systems and I've worked on and developed on 64 bit systems. But until a week ago, my workstation was a 32 bit system. Now, it is a 64 bit quad core Phenom II system, and I suppose I need to start the migration to 64 bit Linux. I do not want to blow off my system and rebuild it. This particular system dates back a decade and through many many updates. There is some digital debris in it, but there is also a fair amount of customization that I have implemented either for my own purposes or for customers, and to lose that customization would represent a headache for me.

What I want to do is install a 64 bit system over top of the 32 bit system. It is my hope that doing this would install the necessary 64 bit libraries, while not impacting the existing 32 bit libraries (except with some possible symlink problems). I then, hopefully, could boot into a 64 bit kernel while still running 32 bit programs. Is this feasible? My backup system is comprehensive; I COULD just try it and back up if my system became hosed. But I'd rather not; I have a lot of work to do and I'd rather not learn by doing in this case.

CentOS 5 :: VMware Server Only Detects 1 Of 2 Quad Core CPU?

Jan 22, 2010

Sadly, I google'd the heck out of this and even the vmware community has no answers. So, I decided to turn to the experts and see if you can provide a better solution than [URL]. The system sees both CPU's and all of the cores (cat /proc/cpuinfo). I have tried with HT and without HT (I never run HT anymore; seems to hurt performance in my workloads). I've tried the recent and newest kernels for CentOS 5.4 and still have no luck. There seems to be lots of people having this issue, but no real solutions.

Dell PE R710 with 2x Xeon CPU X5550

Fedora Hardware :: I7-640M Dual Core Recognized As Quad?

May 27, 2011

I installed Fedora 15 on my relatively new Laptop machine and stumbled upon an odd thing:Even though my CPU is an Intel i7-640M dual core (2x 2.8 Ghz) it somehow seems to be recognized as a quad. System monitor shows 4 CPUs (all of the used to some extend) and even "cat /proc/cpuinfo" gives me 4 processors:


processor: 0
vendor_id: GenuineIntel
cpu family: 6


At the same time the system (while relatively stable) is incredibly slow when it comes to complicated calculations (I do neuron simulations on a custom C++ framework).

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server And Compaq Proliant ML330 G2 W/ATA RAID?

Jun 7, 2010

I'm having a great deal of time getting Lucid Server up and running on my Compaq Proliant ML330 G2. I've put a thread up in installing and upgrading, but people there don't seem to have any ideas about my problem. Since I figured there would be a higher concentration of server users here,

I've got a Proliant ML330 G2, 2 1.4 GHz PIV's
A dvd and CD drive on IDE1 (I'll explain why in a moment
A 65 gb hdd on IDE2
and four 40gb hdd's on hardware ide raid.

I've tried everything, but I can't get the sucker to boot. Installing to the raid array doesn't work. Some array setups won't partition, and others aren't even recognized as arrays. I've tried disabling the raid array and installing to the IDE hdd (my original intention) but I just get bad system disk errors. It would be exceptionally helpful if anyone has one of these boxes, or has worked on one, but I'm willing to take advice from any direction at this point.

Ubuntu Servers :: Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 Refusing To Install 10.10

Mar 29, 2011

I have a Compaq server, as per the title, and I wish to install Ubuntu Server onto it but ran aground when I found it got to trying to run the installer after the CD Boot menu, it just stopped there, waited 180 seconds (as per the error's details) and then locked up with the Caps Lock & Scroll Lock lights on the keyboard flashing.

Now I know it's not the server, as I have installed other OSes onto it in the past, including an older version of Ubuntu server (9.04), I did try and re-install the 9.04 version but the CD I had was too scratched up and got to a point in the installer (copying files) where it just failed cos it couldn't read the disc.

The specs of the thing are:

Dual PentiumIIIs 1.4GHz
512mb RAM (keep meaning to upgrade it)
3x 18.2GB 10k SCSI HDDs (Storage)


Not sure what else is in there, but the full specs are on the web...

CentOS 5 Hardware :: No Throttling Scalling Speedstep On Xeon Quad-Core

Jun 30, 2009

System recognizes that CPU is capable of throttling, but there is no module to govern it. So Xeon always runs at full frequency.This is not convenient as my server is not always in full use, so I would like it to lower power consumption, especially for AC, with frequency scaling enabled.Can you help me is this some bug, misconfiguration in default kernel or guys who writes kernel think that scaling is not necessary for servers processors?

From my analysis so far, I think that the issue lies with the fact that module acpi-cpufreq does not support Xeons and that there is no dedicated module for this processor family (e.g. p4-clockmod) module in the default kernel.

Debian Installation :: HP Proliant N40L Does Not Boot Into USB Stick

Mar 14, 2015

I have downloaded the "debian-7.8.0-amd64-netinst.iso" from the official website. I then used dd to create a bootable usb stick. The usb stick is detected by the HP Proliant server but it does not boot from it, even if no other OS is present (so boot order is not the problem, and even if it was, i checked the bios). I tried the original iso in a Virtualbox environment and it worked without a problem.

I then tried creating the usb stick in Windows using "Unetbootin" and "LinuxLive Creator". When I insert the stick into the HP this time it boots from it and all is good. I can not use this approach though, because I want to automate the installation until I can SSH onto the server. But somehow unetbootin and linuxlivecreator overwrite my modified debian isos preseed file (which also works perfectly on a Virtualmachine).I also used dd to create a Ubuntu usb stick and that works without a problem on the HP Proliant.

Server :: Debian On HP ProLiant DL380 - NIC Driver Installation - Firmware-bnx2

Apr 5, 2011

I have a HP ProLiant DL380 server and I am trying to install Debian on it.

I had an error that said dhcp configuration failed at the base installation and Debian found my NICs but asked for driver.

I've Googled it and found out that I need to install required Broadcom NetExtreme NIC drivers.

There are images that 3rd people have created but I don't want to use them as it will be a server.

Another way to install them is to download .deb package and install it from a removable media when asked.

So I went ahead and did an expert install mode and choosed adding packages from a media so an option appeared for me to install stuff from removable media now.

Each time I choose it, my flash drive's lights are blinking but then I am getting an error says this package can not be installed are you sure to install a non signed package.

I say yes at that stage but I still can't install and then it says this is probably happening because of kernel version miss match.

I downloaded latest stable copy of Debian and also downloaded the stable squeeze copy of the driver from official Debian site too. [url]

Is this a kernel mismatch between my Deb. version and the driver?

And after many try my server started hanging at detecting network hardware stage, how can I deal with this?

Also finally I started to get this...


Is this happening because I am using wrong architecture CD?

I have i386 image and my server has 2 x Pentium 3 processor.

Debian :: Wheezy Only Recognizes 1 Core Or Dual Core CPU?

Sep 7, 2011

I have now installed Wheezy on two different hard drives and in each case it seems only one CPU of my dual core CPU computer is recognized. System Monitor, Gkrellm and lscpu show just one when prior to the new install the old Wheezy showed both CPU's. I have put the hard drive into two other computers with dual core CPU's and all show just one CPU.

Interestingly System Profiler and Benchmark (hardinfo?) > Devices > Processors now show a large amount of processor infomation when with the old Wheezy I would only see both CPU's listed and nothing else.

Fedora Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Doesn't Work For Core 12 And WinXP?

Jun 7, 2010

I have an HP Pavilion m7480n PC with Windows XP installed on the C-drive. I successfully installed FC 12 onto the spare USB drive. When I rebooted the PC all I got was a blinking underscore at the extreme upper left position of a totally black screen. After a bit of experimenting I found that if I hit the F1 key during the boot process, go into the BIOS setup, do nothing within the setup, and press ESC to get out of the setup then the PC will go back into the boot cycle a second time. During the second time however a small text message appears with words to the effect "Press any key to enter GRUB..." after which the GRUB splash screen comes up with the choice for FC 12 or "Other" (referring to Win XP). At that point I can boot into either one.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrading From Core 4 To Core 10?

May 20, 2009

I have created a virtual machine of a system running Fedora Core 4 and I need to upgrade it to Fedora Core 10. Based on what I have read, it iis possible so I started theupgrade process. I get an error message saying that /dev/hda6 (my root paritition does not exist) even though it does.

Does the installer need to read a label from /etc/fstab? I executed tune2fs -L / /dev/hda6 amd ,and added LABEL=/ for the corresponding entry for fstab. but the FEDORA CORE 10 is still giving the same problems for the installation process. Should I upgrade to an intermediate verson like Fedora Core 7 first?

General :: Debian Server Vs Ubuntu Vs Slackware For Quad Xeon DL580 G3

Feb 17, 2011

I'm very new to Linux and I'm looking for some guidance on which version of Linux server I should install. I read several posts that try to compare Slackware, Debian server, and Ubuntu but the message I got is that each version has its pros/cons. The version that you end up using should ultimately be the best for what you are trying to do.

I purchased a HP Proliant DL580 G3 with the following configuration:

(4) Intel Xeon 3.0Ghz CPU's W/ 8mb Cache/667mHz FSB
16GB RAM @ 16 x 1GB ELPIDA PC2-3200-333
(2) 36.4GB 15k U320 SCSI Hard Drives
(2) Power Supplies
DVD Drive

This server will be configured as my web server and database server. I will use Apache and MySQL.

I want the server to be as secure as possible and will be following the recommendations on the book "Hacking Linux Exposed" to configure Linux.

I would like to install a version of Linux that will utilize all of the server's resources - the 4 x Xeon Processors and the 16 GB of RAM. As for the RAID configuration I plan to just have the hard drives mirrored. And lastly someone recommended that I cache my website in the RAM for faster load times. I have not researched this yet but would like the Linux version suggested to allow me to do this. I assume any Linux version would allow me to do this but I thought it would be safer to include it in this list.
