Subject: Xserve now boots Linux
Date: Wed Jul 31 10:28:01 2002
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?
