I've tried it first on an Opteron with 32 bit OS and then on Athlon64
with FC2, 64 bits. Both work. Although this is with the CVS code, I'm
pretty sure nothing has changed in that bit. Have you updated to the
latest kernel on your Opteron? Mine is at:
[appel1:gmxbench/d.villin] % uname -a
Linux appel1 2.6.8-1.521 #1 Mon Aug 16 09:01:00 EDT 2004 x86_64 x86_64
