Thanks. I didn't realise it was only 32 bit athlons only.
Any idea what EDAC modules 64 bit Athlon 64s should use? Under RHEL the
k8_edac module provides ECC checking, but this module no longer exists as
far as I can tell in Fedora 10.
I seems strange that Fedora doesn't support ECC on AMD systems, but RHEL
The k8_edac module in RHEL5 is there via an out-of-tree patch. I can't recall
why, but upstream had issues with the code, so it has yet to be merged into
Linus' kernel, thus the reason its not in the Fedora kernel.
CC'ing Aris, who might have a better idea on upstream progress of that code...
