    Hi guys, before I get flamed and told to search the forums, I have done this and read every post related to it.

    Having done that, I am still a little unsure which version to use, other than the known quota bug in the x86_64 version, most seem to be saying that CentOS 4.4 fixed a lot of the 64bit woes, yet some disagree with this, the idea of me posting this is to collate peoples opinions of the present state (not that of 6 months ago)

    Could everyone running/did run x86_64 version of CentOS 4.4 please post experiences and possible GOTCHAS with it?

    I have just purchased a new box to replace one of my FC4 servers and am trying to gauge the best release to use, I am sticking with CentOS but cant make my mind up whether to run 64bit

    My New box is a Dell 1950 with 2xdual core xeon 5120's & 2GB RAM running with SAS Discs, are there any potential issues I should be looking out for?

    TIA

    Go on, have a guess
    The main issue I come across is perl module support from cpan.org - it is getting better but every noe and again you have to do some symlinking in /usr/lib or /lib to get new perl modules to compile correctly. Thankfully most of the perl module developers seem to be taking into account the x86_64 library setup.

    As for cPanel installed stuff, the main bone of contention seems to be with easyapache, but I haven't spotted any major issues in a while.

    excellent stuff, thank you

    I assume mailscanner, SA & clamavmodule are ok?

    Yes, though the library issue can affect any application but is usually resolved quite easily.
