SUSE / Novell :: Install Fails To Recognize Ide Hard Drives

Aug 25, 2010

I have an Intel MB (855GME with 6300ESB) that I'm having trouble installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto the IDE drive. It will install to a SATA drive but for various reasons I need to install on IDE (PATA on 6300ESB). The install fails to find any ide drive (I know the drive/interface works because I can install XP on this same ide drive and boot from it). If I parse the dmesg output I see the message "ata_piix 0000:1f.1 device not available because of BAR 2 (0x0-0x7) collisions". I'm trying to determine if there's some workaround for this. I've tried various kernel parameters and no joy.

I've tried Ubuntu with similar results. Older kernels WILL install onto this same MB/PATA controller (Ubuntu 6.06, 2.6.15 and RHEL4) so it seems that something changed in the ATA driver as the kernel has matured and my bios isn't up to snuff for these pickier drivers.

Ubuntu :: Install Fails To Recognize PATA Hard Drives

Aug 24, 2010

I have an Intel MB (855GME with 6300ESB) that I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu 9.0.4 on. It will install to a SATA drive but for various reasons I need to install on IDE (PATA on 6300ESB). The install fails to find any ide drive (I know the drive/interface works because I can install XP on this same ide drive). If I boot Ubuntu from the DVD (on USB) and open a terminal window and parse the dmesg output I see the message "pata_acpi :xxx device not available because of BAR 2 collisions". I'm trying to determine if there's some workaround for this. I've tried various kernel parameters and no joy.

Fedora Installation :: F11 Drivers For ASUS P5L-VM 1394 - Procedure Fails To Recognize The Hard Drives

Aug 10, 2009

I would like to install Fedora 11 on an ASUS P5L-VM 1394 motherboard with a 3 GHz Pentium 4 CPU. This is an LGA775 socket mobo with a Intel 945G chipset. Two SATA hard drives are plugged into SATA ports. An IDE DVD drive is plugged into the IDE/ATA port. Using the 32 bit Fedora 11 installation disk, I have seen two cases:

1) No hard drive recognized. When i get to the disk configuration screen, there are no options to choose from.

2) By monkeying around with the BIOS settings or switching the SATA ports the disks are connected to, I can get an alternative mode in which no drivers are found for the DVD drive either.

Currently, a version of Ubuntu is installed. UPDATE: The board was purchased in a P3-PH4C barebones, which for unknown reasons requires a different BIOS issue than the regular P5L-VM 1394. Updating to the most recent BIOS does not resolve the problem. One the installation procedure fails to recognize the hard drives, going into a shell and examining the boot up log shows that the kernel recognized both hard drives. So it's down to why the installation procedure is not recognizing them.

SUSE / Novell :: 11.2 DomU Creation On Lvm Fails

Feb 8, 2010

I got this setup:

- Asus M2N32, Athlon X2, 4G Ram, Raid 5
- dom0 on lvm, boots always
- tried to create a domU using dirinstall
- creating a volume lamp in group VGsys with 5G and ext4
- mount /dev/VGsys/lamp /var/tmp/dirinstall
- yast dirinstall: fails when calling dirinstall_finish
- tried to create a domU using vm-install
- creating a volume lamp2 in group VGsys with 5G and ext4
- vm-install fails too
- tried to make an image on susestudio, successfully, but that does not boot, failing when trying to mount the rood partition
- copied the dom0 image to a domU disk

None of these domU booted sucessfully, all of them showed the following messages:

- kernels used and kotd give same results

I am told to disable scsi subsystem in the kernel, I have compiled a kernel before, but

1) I cannot believe I am the only one having this issue or I miss something truely obvious (then what do I miss, please?)

2) dirinstall and vm-install worked in 11.1, there were issues, but recoverable, why now not in 11.2?

SUSE / Novell :: OpenSUSE 11.1 Fails To Boot Past Grub Prompt / Get It To Work?

Jan 28, 2010

OpenSUSE is starting to drive me a bit nuts. Actually what I'm trying to do is simply install VMWare server on a recent as possible SUSE and run 2 virtual machines, both the same SUSE. Of course 11.2 32 bit doesn't run VMWare server 2 so it's back to 11.1. The trouble is, 11.1 won't install properly on my PC.

The install process, booted and installed from the 11.1 network install iso image on CD, runs fine. The PC reboots from hard disk and stops at the grub prompt. I've tried the auto-repair option and reinstalled it from scratch a second time always with the same results. It seems the root partition is hosed, and that's where my understanding hits its limits. Can anyone help?

Incidentally should anyone be able to advise on the VMWare conundrum I'd also be interested. Maybe in another thread...

May 7, 2010

I have been going crazy trying to get Ubuntu 10 installed and working on my G3 B&W. When I boot into the live CD, hit Control-Option-F2 to get into a terminal, then do Fdisk -l, it only shows my CD-ROM. I got 9.04 to install, then updated to 9.1, then to 10, but when I reboot, I get the gave up waiting for root error. Tried typing exit, and changing the wait time to 90. I've spent a lot of time on this, and learned a lot. Anyone no how to get past this?

SUSE / Novell :: Install A D-Link Access Point On Suse 11.0?

Sep 16, 2010

how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.

SUSE / Novell :: Can't Get Suse To Install On The Prepared 20gb Partition?

Aug 23, 2010

I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.

I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.

We have tried loads of combinations of settings in the BIOS and fibre channel BIOS without any success or any idea what may have caused the error.

SUSE / Novell :: Program To Completely Destroy All Data In Free Space On Hard Drive?

Aug 10, 2010

I dont want to wipe the whole drive, and i don't want to delete only particular files. I want to completely destroy all data in free space.I've found some articles about secure-delete package for linux that would allow erasing freespace with the command 'sfill,' but I can't find it in the repositories nor through google. This would be ideal but it seems maybe it's debian only.

SUSE / Novell :: Open - Constantly Accessing Hard Drive - Makes Click Sound Every Time

Jun 26, 2010

The hard drive is accessed every few seconds with OpenSUSE and when it is there is a click sound when it is first accessed. I have other distros which dont make the clicking sound when they access the hard drive. I need to prevent opensuse from making the click sound when it does whatever it's doing. Im not even sure what it's doing or what settings to change, and most importantly how do i make it not click? Maybe i could copy settings over from another distro if i knew which settings to replace.

Ubuntu Servers :: Xferred Hard Drives To New Computer And Apt Fails To Fetch

Nov 5, 2010

I recently moved my ubuntu 9.10 server over to a new case with more memory, and when I did the webserver worked like a charm, but now apt-get is broken. Checked my 70-persistent-net.rules and saw the new NIC was there, so I edited my interfaces to use eth1 for the new NIC, but apt is still not working, failing to fetch everything. here is my 70-persistent-net.rules

SUSE / Novell :: OpenSUSE 11.2 Won't Install Fully?

Mar 15, 2010

So I have tried to install from LiveCD and from a LiveUSB stick. Installation goes fine till I get to CUPS daemon. Then I get the wait 30 seconds for CUPS to activate, that never works. Then it pops up with a wait one minute for CUPS to become available. Then it finishes the installation and restarts the system and I get previous installation has failed would you like to retry? It does this over and over again till I get an error with my user name and the mouse and keyboard quit working. I have tried in Failsafe mode, No ACPI, etc. and nothing seems to work. I don't know if it matters but I have an Asus mobo M4A785-M and an AMD Athlon II x3 440 chip. I am just ready to switch to Ubuntu

Should I resize sda3? can I use sda8 as /Home for both Mint and OpenSUSE?
