Today on penguinppc.org:
Ben Herrenschmidt has pounded 1U of Apple hardware into submission. The
Xserve has booted and run GNU/Linux!. There are still some kinks to work
out, and your favorite distribution's installer may need some tweaks to
install (check with them). Support in the kernel source trees is
forthcoming. Word is, running in uniprocessor mode GNU/Linux returned
data from mysql databases 4 times faster than OSX running in SMP mode.
This was with the same datasets, same queries, same mysql version, and
same compile options.
There we go. What would we do without him?
