|CPU_status = OK |CPU_comments = I'm using: CPU model AMD Athlon(tm) X2 dual core Processor 6000+ |CPU_L1_status = OK |CPU_L1_comments = CPU: L1 Cache 64K (64 bytes/line), D cache 64K (64 bytes/line) |CPU_L2_status = OK |CPU_L2_comments = CPU: L2 1024K (64 bytes/line} |CPU_L3_status = N/A |CPU_multiple_status = N/A |CPU_multicore_status = Works fine |CPU_multicore_comments = Build packages that put the machine under a heavy load; gcc, linux and glibc were fine

RAM_DDR2_status = 4GB, ( 2 by 2GB cards), 667
