Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Linux kernel for Oracle on 8 GB RAM machine?
rpm2cpio kernel-2.4.21-4.EL.src.rpm | cpio -idv", and took a look.
There are 17 different
kernel-2.4.21-*.config files, 3
which I assume might be appropriate for Xeons:
kernel-2.4.21-i686.config kernel-2.4.21-i686-hugemem.config kernel-2.4.21-i686-smp.config
I'm not going to look through that stuff in detail nor build a kernel
right now, but diff'ing some of the different config files is itself
instructive. E.g. the "smp" and "hugemem" i686 kernel configs
both have both
CONFIG_X86_NUMA=y set, which is not what I'd have naively
