Dual Xeon Processor support, Dell Poweredge

Postby Barefoothurst on Mon Apr 28, 2014 11:28 am

Hello everyone,
I have researched this problem and I was unable to find a solid solution. I have a nice Dell Poweredge III server that I am re-purposing as a home media server/workstation. I would like to run a version of Mint with Cinnamon desktop. I have installed Mint 16 64bit and I doesn't seem to recognize the second processor.
The hardware is as follows.
Dell Poweredge III Server all firmware is updated to latest.
Dual xeon e5410 processors running 2.33ghz 12mb L2 catch
Perc 6I Raid controller
8 x 2tb sata harddrives in raid 50 and raid 10
Dell CJF72 nVidia GeForce 7800GTX 512MB DDR5 PCI-e Video Card

The hardware is 64bit system so I would like to install a 64bit os but if i have to go 32 bit to get dual processor support I will. Also I like the current releases of Mint but If an older release would suite my system better I would go that route.
Thanks for your help.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
