My system, which is in my signature. It was overclocked to 3Ghz, but it isn't now because it really doesn't need to be.

I don't know how long it takes to emerge -e world, but I emerged about 500 packages overnight with time to spare (when I first installed xorg-x11, nvidia-drivers, gnome, and some other things)

Gentoo is running on a virtual machine inside Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 - great for testing


How do you like the xSeries 445? I have an opportunity to get one with all eight CPUs (2.7 GHz Xeon MP with 2 MB L3) for pretty cheap and was wondering if I should do that or not. Mostly I want to know if it is unbearably noisy or not since I don't have a proper rack for it- it will sit on a very sturdy bench next to my desk.

C2D E8500 E0 @ 4GHz
Asus P5Q Pro
2x2GB DDR2 1066 OCZ Reaper HPC
500 GB WD Caviar
512MB HIS HD4850 Turbo IceQ4 (650/1000)
Edimax EW-7128G
550w Seasonic S12 EnergySaver SS-550HT


Had some issues with getting my HD4850 to play well with X and Fglrx a couple of months ago, but I totally wiped and reinstalled Gentoo the other day and now it's working with no problems. Most of the games I've tried playing so far have comparible performance to Windows.

Install I am about to do:

Compaq Alphaserver DS20L
2x Alpha EV68AL processors (833MHz)
2gb ECC ram
probably going to install sans hard drive - *maybe* a small one.

each of the two processors supposedly has more floating-point speed than the newest i7's.

oh yeah, and it fit in a 1U box (I'm modding the fans, so it doesn't anymore, but it's quieter than 51db :P)

I am waiting for someone to install Gentoo on the microcontroller of a large tractor or other piece of heavy earth-moving equipment, for a hands-down win at this "Most powerful machine..." thread.

you have wayy too much swap - the general rule nowadays is to not go over 512MB... of course, if you have that much ram, why do you need swap anyway?

There are reasons to have relatively large quantities of swap space.
