Haiku compatible with Opteron processors?


#1

Putting a new (old) box together for testing other stuff and would love to test Haiku on it. I remember there was an AMD patch for BeOS, but because this is based on a different kernel, I’ll assume that won’t be required?

Specs
Tyan Thunder K8W dual socket. Opty 250 times 2
8 gigs ddr2 ECC ram
Audigy 2 sound card
AGP x850 pro / AGP 7800 gt

Yes, no patch required. Any CPU with MMX instructions should do (that’s Pentium Pro and above), so Opteron is fine.

Thanks heaps, will see how the testing goes. :slight_smile:
