    Re: scsi configuration

    You need to put termination onto the far end of your SCSI cable(s).

    If the drives are really old, they may have "Termination Enable" via jumper. This lets you put /this/ drive on the far end of...

    Re: Compression on Linux

    If you want to pack up a directory structure, use tar.

    Then, if you want a small archive file, make tar pipe through bzip2 (-j option).

    But if you're concerned about compression speed, e.g....

    Re: DDR RAM keeps clocking itself at 100mhz....

    Higher DIMM and chip count always means degraded frequency and timing. Laws of physics btw, not (as you'll hear everywhere) "a limitation of the AMD64 chips".

    If that's a socket-754 board and the...

    Re: Memory Matrix for Athlon 64X2 and Core2

    Athlons have no front side bus, and thus have no dependency on what is the ideal RAM speed to match the FSB speed.

    For AMD64, just use whatever you deem appropriate and fits your budget - DDR from...

    Re: TLER enable or disable?

    The feature is there so the RAID management doesn't take the entire drive offline for not responding, but rather handles the bad read data error and then goes on with its business. I'd enable it.

    Re: TLER enable or disable?

    GT, you got your facts backward. What "TLER" does is limit the time the drive is trying to read an unreadable block, giving you an error message EARLIER than it would with TLER disabled.

    Re: SCSI Host adapter

    Does the board have 64-bit PCI slots? No, probably.

    In that case an U160 adapter will do, since the PCI bus will limit it to 100 MB/s (and this drive is slower than that in actual media...

    Re: K7S5A Won't clock at 133MHz with 1.4 AMD 3200

    Probably a lack of power - old boards like the K7S5A use no extra 4-pin supply for the CPU, and draw all the power from the main 20-pin plug. You need an equally old fashioned power PSU for them.

    Re: DDR2 667 vs DDR2 533

    The 667-5 stick will run 533-4 just as well. That's because 4x7.5ns = 5x6ns.

    The price difference should be close to zero, so get the DIMM that does the 6ns clock period (166 MHz, DDR667) at all.

    Re: kt600-a Memory problems over 1gb

    Mind the DDR specs - 200 MHz with one DIMM, 166 with two, 133 with three.

    So to get three DIMMs reliable on a single-channel chipset, the RAM frequency must be at 133 MHz (DDR266, PC2100).

    Re: I gig dual or 1.5 gig total?? Help please

    Asymmetrical configurations are not widely supported - some A64 processors can do it, and even with those many BIOSes don't get it right.

    Another (exactly identical) DIMM would be the right thing...
  19. Re: 2T ddr333 when all 4 memory slots are filled on a64s?

    With three ranks per channel, 200 MHz 2T may very well be feasible, says the AMD table - and in your case it appears to be the case, auto-detected, tested to be stable.

    Amarok sends a quieter stream into the unaltered mixer when you turn down the volume there. This might be nice at first sight, but leads to an audible quality loss. Think of it - 16-bit audio data,...

    Re: SD Ram 133/184 pin

    Now ... we know you need ECC. Do you need unbuffered or registered DIMMs?

    $100 for 1GByte isn't exactly expensive, less than what you'd pay for current technology DIMMs.

    Re: SD Ram 133/184 pin

    No it won't - unless it has both kinds of slots, and then it's either SDR or DDR, never both at the same time.

    Check your facts and post them here: What board is that?

    Re: dd2 pc800 question...

    You're still doubling the frequencies ... DDR2-800 runs at 400 MHz not 800.

    Anyway - lesser speed grades of AM2 processors do not generate higher than 333 MHz RAM frequency (DDR2-667).
