  • 5. ath0: device timeout
    is this a new problem? Everything has been working famously on this box with respect to the builtin atheros ethernet device. I updated to current a few days ago and now after a few minutes the connection dies with repeated: ath0: device timeout. The difference is, as mentioned, I am on the latest current. also, since the generic kernel has the atheros stuff in it I took them out of /boot/loader.conf. so, here's what I have: /boot/loader.conf: #wlan_wep_load="yes" #wlan_tkip_load="YES" #wlan_ccmp_load="YES" wlan_xauth_load="YES" #if_ath_load="yes" kernel config file: ... # Wireless NIC cards device wlan # 802.11 support device wlan_wep # 802.11 WEP support device wlan_ccmp # 802.11 CCMP support device wlan_tkip # 802.11 TKIP support device ath # Atheros pci/cardbus NIC's device ath_hal # Atheros HAL (Hardware Access Layer) device ath_rate_sample # SampleRate tx rate control for ath device wlan_xauth # INTERESTING THAT THIS MODULE DOESN'T AUTO-LOAD WITH WPA ...

I'm looking at a new system, and as I look at prices I'm beginning to 
wonder if a 64 bit clawhammer chip might be worth it. The system will 
need to dual boot WinXP and FreeBSD. Any one have any experince with 
such a system?

Not yet...

It would be a wonderful convenience if the page on the AMD64 port
  < http://www.**--****.com/ ;
actually had links to things such as installation instructions.

Something like the Installation Instructions, 
< http://www.**--****.com/ ~bmah/relnotes/5.2-RELEASE/installation-amd64.html>
or the hardware notes...

Athlon 64 is only supported in FreeBSD 5.X but FreeBSD 5.X is not as 
stable as 4.X. The ISO image is available at

The two build machines used to build FreeBSD/amd64 packages are very
stable under heavy load, so indications are good for general stability
of 5.2 on amd64.

1.sparc 64 and AMD 64 bit

  Will a machine with 64 bit SPARC AMD CPU will run the sparc64
of linux ?

 I know that,for example, when you install with  AMD 64 bit **Intel**
processors  , you use x86_64 arch;
so the question here is sparc64 suitable for 64 bit AMD SPARC?


2.Sybase ASE Linux for AMD Opteron 64 bit


Does anyone know if Sybase has or plans to release a ASE version for
64-bit AMD and/or Itanium?

If not, does anyone know if I will run into problems running the Linux
x86 version of ASE on my Fedora server running an AMD Opteron Dual Core


3.fread differences on AMD v/s intel on 64 bit linux

I have a script that behaves VERY differently on Linux 64bit (RHEL 4 and RHEL 5) boxes with AMD chips than Intel chips.  The AMD box behaves find when using the 32 bit OS.  The problem is time.  The AMD box takes MANY times longer to run the script compared to the Intel and 32bit AMD box. Profile shows the biggest chunk of change happening on fread statements.  

This elicits a very simple question:  Is there a difference between how fread works on an AMD box with 64 bit Linux than Intel with same 64 bit linux?

I'm extremely confused on the matter. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

4.matlab 7.0.4 slow on AMD-64 3700+ running linux

Hi Folks,

Matlab seems to be running slow on my new laptop, a AMD-64 3700+
running Fedora Core 3.  I have 1 GB of memory, and am using a 32-bit
kernel: 2.6.9-1.667.

mean(bench(10)) = 0.8967    0.6614    0.6181    1.6055    1.3180

Can anyone running on a AMD-64 tell me if these values are slow?  If
so, can anyone tell me why?
