Re: LPAR Questions



fixed

I understand that. I'm no linux wiz, I just love to try and get things working. It took me a few trys to pick the right install options.


I just had a few minutes to try on P7 when I read about the announcement for Power8.

I am not doing much with mine, mostly some MySQL stuff.

Sure sure there is 'works' and 'Supported'. I'm all in on 'Works' but
remember that customers and production stuff really need 'Supported'. :-)

Ubuntu is supported on Power8 only.

There is at least one other open distribution (that escapes memory
retrieval just now)

Nigel Griffiths says Power7 supports Fedora-18-ppc64 and Debian 7. These
won't have all the DLPAR bits and whatnot installed but they load and
run.

Yes, there are limitations as to what versions of Linux are
supported. I
think it's basically red hat and suse.
After further review I think they've added ubuntu
