Upgrading to Quad Core and new motherboard


Well, last week my P35 series Gigabyte motherboard had some problems.  I thought it was battery related but turns out my motherboard may be faulty.  I decied to replace it with a more power efficient P43 Gigabyte motherboard (P45 series seem still too buggy for Linux).  With that, I decided to replace my dual core 2 CPU with a newer dual core 2 quad cpu.  My old motherboard will be replaced and then sent to Quang Trung as a new server.

I am currently testing Funtoo Linux on my upgraded system.  It is not an easy install.  I am having a bit of problems with the rc-update scripts.

By the weekend, I should be back posting again.
