    Default Post Your System Specs

    I found that I can get my Linux fix here, but it would be good to have a better pc hardware discussion and activity.

    So I figured, what are all of your hardware system specs (mobo, graphix, hard drive, memory, etc..)? Also, what distro(s) are you running there?

    I am running a Pentium 4 with an Intel motherboard and Gentoo 2006 and 512MB of RAM.

    I also have an Acer laptop with Gentoo.

    I am wanting to upgrade though so any advice you have on what you like in your sys would also be good!

    Merry Christmas

    My specs are in my sig. If you are asking for specs then could you get a little more detailed than just saying an Intel motherboard with a Pentium4 processor? That would make a thread like this help out other people much more by letting them know what other members have in their system.

    I got two desktop systems mainly consisting of:
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    Intel DG965WH Media Series Desktop Motherboard (G965 Graphics and all other important devices onboard)
    2 and 1 GB of system memory, respectively
    SATA2-HDD(s) via ICH8 (libata/AHCI)
    (both running Gentoo GNU/Linux ~amd64)

    My third system is a "vintage" Desktop with
    AMD Athlon XP Mobile 2400+
    ABIT NF7-S rev2.0
    Sapphire ATI Radeon 8500
    1GB system memory
    a parallel ATA subsystem
    (running Kubuntu 6.10, will be used for testing 7.04 soon)

    Then there's my laptop, an IBM Thinkpad T40, with
    Intel Pentium M Banias (Centrino)
    ATI Radeon 7500
    Intel Pro/1000 GigE LAN Adapter
    256MB system memory (surprisingly, this works quite well - as long as I don't run OO-org )
    (running Kubuntu 6.10)

    And last but not least, my dedicated file-, media- and homeserver, which is soon to be revived
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Venice)
    Foxconn 6150K8MD-8EKRSH (Graphics and everything onboard - nice product name, by the way!)
    SATA2-RAID5 setup via lvm2/md/libata/AHCI
    512MB system memory
    (distribution yet to be decided)

    Did Intel release a new BIOS yet for your problem? I still haven't heard from them about that.

    No, they did not give a f*ck, neither did MDT. Poor me, went to shop for new (and thoroughly more expensive, memory market fluctuations be damned!) DIMMs after four weeks of constant nagging. Thanks for your efforts nonetheless

    I should list all of the Phoronix test systems sometime. At any time there's usually about 36 different setups readily available, granted of course, we phase out old hardware quite quickly -- i.e. donating Athlon XP, Socket 478 systems, etc.
