SubjectRe: [discuss] Re: NUMA support for dual core Opteron
I didn't see any problem about NUMA with LinuxBIOS + 8way dual core system.
of couse the acpi support in Kernel is disabled.

p.s. can you use powernow when acpi is disabled?
p.s.s Is powerpc64 support ACPI? or ACPI is only can be used by x86?
