Opteron 6272 question....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If i get the proper supermicro motherboard to run an opteron 6272, will i be able to run ubuntu 11.10 with no issues? Im looking to use the H8SGL-O mb with this setup. Im trying to build a cheap 16 core folding rig. Supermicros website only has drivers for windows, suse and redhat. As im not really an amd person i dont know how well a server mb/cpu will install with ubuntu.

I do not know whether or not UBuntu will support the that mb after looking at the drivers for it from the supermicro website but i will tell you what i do know. First i would suggest to get a 2p Mobo, since down the road you could another 6272 for a 32-core folding monster, basically better upgrade path later down. Second, CentOS is based entirely on the free sources of RHEL so the RHEL drivers could work in CentOS or you could try the SUSE drivers in OpenSUSE which is SUSE just sorta developed in a community-driven way, with no proprietary software and more frequent releases, and no support from novell.

I googled the CentOS and im downloading the iso now. Im hoping to get all this stuff together in a month or so. As far as the 2p thing goes, im trying to keep the size of the mb down. The 1p mb's are normally standard atx size. The 2p boards are much larger and more expensive. Future expandability is nice, but not necessarily in the budget at the moment.

Hope it all works for you since i have no experience with CentOS and whether or not the RHEL drivers will work in CentOS. Good Luck though! thumb.gif

Also note that the SM board might require a proprietry psu, I went for a Tyan board in the end because it takes a standard psu, the coolermaster spg 1200w in my case.
