i am planning to assemble a new server. based on the requirements i have a chosen an Intel Xeon E5430 2.66 Ghz LGA 771 processor. i am also planning to get an intel server motherboard for the system.
but i am unsure about the compatibility of intel server motherboards compatibility with ubuntu server 64 bit as the site only lists compatibility with red hat and suse.
server motherboards supported by the above processor are Intel 5000P, 5000V, 5400A, 5100, 5400B.
Are there any problems like 'noapic' error that i might face with the above motherboards.
any info will be appreciated.
