CentOS 5 Hardware :: 5.5 - Does Currently Not Support Oxford's OXPCIe952-F Serial Controller Chip
Jan 27, 2011
Is it possible that CentOS 5.5 does currently not support Oxford's OXPCIe952-F serial controller chip? We've added one of those PCIe x1 cards to one of our servers since we need additional serial interfaces but it doesn't seem to work. Instead of three serial ports (the server comes with one already, the controller adds two more) we still only have ttyS0:
root/linux2$ zgrep ttyS /var/log/*
/var/log/dmesg:serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
/var/log/dmesg:00:08: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
I am attempting to load CentOS 5 on an Acer 6900 desktop and I'm not even getting out of the starting gate. I am familiar with using linux but not the install procedure which is why I am beginning to dive into this. However, when I bring the system up off the Linux boot disk and go to install it's not even giving me the option of the controller so I can begin installing the os from the dvd-rom. This is what acer lists as the controller for the 6900: ich8 serial ata storage controller 2820 linux driver. I cannot find this driver for linux anywhere.
I can not get the node or cloud controllers to startup using the init.d scripts. I have a fresh install of CentOS 5.4 with Eucalyptus 1.6.2 I have compiled Eucalyptus and all packages using the RPM supplied from Eucalyptus and utilizing yum installer. I do not currently have any processes or applications listening currently on the ports on the boxes as well. I think it may be a permissions issue or something because I get a "permission denied error", but I am not sure if it is Eucalyptus or CentOS. It looks as if it is not binding to the address on the interface of the NIC. It may be something else however. I have the Node controller, Cloud controller, and Cluster controller on seperate physical boxes. When I try to run either the cloud controller or the node controller I get this message:
[root@cluster-cont ~]# /etc/init.d/eucalyptus-cc start Starting Eucalyptus cluster controller: (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:8774 (13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:8774
i want to try with a small application in linu in that i want to read some data from controller using serial port and i wanna transfor that data to another meachin in the network for this i want serial port interfacing programming as well as socket programming.
On my CentOS 5.2 install I've installed a dual-port serial card based on the NetMOS 9835 chipset. I've followed the serial instructions, but everything they tell me to do is already done - see setserial outputs below. I've compared these values to the lspci output (below, NetMos card is at the bottom of the output) for the card and it appears right. Problem being, I can't use the serial ports. Oh and I did use search, and looked at every 9835-related article before posting this :)
I have been unable to boot my CoreExpress Atom Z530 based board from flash, because my 184.108.40.206 kernel does not seem to have support for the (US15W chipset) IDE controller configured. I have read many web links that point to CONFIG_PATA_SCH as the key, but that does not work for me. I _can_ boot RedHat 2.6.18-164.e15 which does not have CONFIG_PATA_SCH configured, but I believe they are using initrd.
I have SSDs connect to my Linux machine through the LSI SAS/SATA 1068E controller. I've been trying to issue a ATA secure erase command to my SSDs, but I keep getting error. In fact even hdparm -i fails.
Initially I thought there was some kernel configuration issue, so I tried connecting a SSD to the on board SATA and I no longer get errors. The secure erase worked. It seems there is some compatibility issue with hdparm and the LSI controller/driver I'm using. Any way to make hdparm play nice with my LSI controller? Has anyone had success getting hdparm to work with drives connected to an LSI controller?
Additianal info: Linux Kernel: 2.6.30 hdparm: v9.27 LSI driver: Fusion MPT SAS Host driver 3.04.07
I had tried to build up my linux box as Domain Controller and DNS for serving clients of windows xp. But it didn't succeded. Its always giving error of DNS SRV record. I already created SRV records and the service is also started. Please Send me the complete configuration of LDAP CUM DNS on rhel5.
can I bother you with the ever ongoing story on Bug 125524 ?What would be your advice for someone like me with intermediate level of understanding Linux only : I would like to make the "8250.nr_uarts=6" boot option permanent with Kernel <= 2.6.32-29 on LUCID 10.04 .And, sadly, compiling the kernel => 2.6.37-7 did not work for me
I have got a server which has a motherboard with nvidia mediashield raid built in, with Centos installed it picked up the raid 5 array that i had configured as one drive so the os install was straight forward. When i booted the netinstaller of opensuse 11.3 run though the setup, when getting to the partition setup is was picking up the three hdd as seperate drives and not one, so i got to a certain point and aborted the installation and i re run the installer, the raid status said the array was degarded or something which i knew there was nothing wrong with it as i had set it up only about 2 weeks ago and there was one drive missing aswell. So i removed the array and re configured the array and rebooted and the raid status said healthy again as it was before on centos, then i run the opensuse installer again and it went though the process again but completely stop at "Searching for linux partitions" , cursor was working fine , but nothing else was so i had to press reset.
This was my problem, i know kind of what the problem is, but what i want to know is , i thought opensuse is based on rhel same as centos but how comes centos has the drivers for the raid chip i have in my board and opensuse has not.
I have built-in-motherboard Ethernet with this MArvell 88e8059 chip. During CentOS 5.5 install it didnt find it. then i found some page here on forums which said how to install sk98lin driver, and several people reported it working after that. Their chips were 8056 and others.. So i decided that should probably work in my case too, i installed it, and then i could see it in Network COnfiguration manager.
But during reboot, it cannot obtain IP information, and in Network Config manager it is "Inactive", setting it to Active fails to obtain IP again...
I installed Oxford dictionary by running a .sh script But The application does not appear in the Applications List to be used.I inserted the CD-Rom, logged in as root and executed the setup.sh file.The installation was done into /root/OALD7 folder. The installation processes was completed as successful! How Do I get this Application working?
I've installed a new fresh Centos 5.5 ..and after a lot of work..something starts to work (X now works with the new ATI HD5145 using ATI drivers) but i've a serious problemThe ethernet controller JMC250 JMicron PCI EXPR. doesent work at all so my notebook is out of the world !!!Here is some infos:rpm -q centos-release
I am trying to install Centos 5.6 on a motherboard with a built in Marvel 88SE61xx drive controller.NO drive arrays are configured using the Marvel BIOS configuration utility.During the install CENTOS displays loading MARVEL_PATA driver and it waits and waits and waits.Looking on one of the system message screens I get the following types of messages:qc timeoutfailed to identifyI/O errorLink is slow to respondSRST failed errno=16ata4: reset failed - giving upAny ideas as to how to get CENTOS to recognize the drives connected to the motherboard Marvell controller on a NON-RAID configuration?
I have had a Supermicro X7DCL-3 motherboard based machine, running CentOS 5.2 x86_64, recently upgraded to 5.3.Strangely enough, although I must have installed the 5.2 using DVD disk, the running system does not show the DVD drive. The machine was not used very much so I noticed that only today, after the update. There is no trace of it in 'dmesg', thera are no /dev/cd* and/or /dev/dvd* devices. The IDE controller is IT8213 (as shown by 'lspci'). In 5.2 kernel (2.6.18-92.el5-x86_64) lspci says "unknown device". I have checked the /usr/src/kernels/*/.config files and both kernels (5.2 and 2.6.18-128.el5-x86_64 of 5.3) seam to have the support for that controller added into the kernel:CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IT821X=yAny idea why it is not working? The Supermicro has apparently noticed this also as their OS compatibility chart lists the IDE interface for that motherboard as supported up to RHEL 5.1 but not for 5.2.
In our company, we have one server with kernel, 2.6.18. because of our neads, we had to buy new hard disk,that slax live cd detects that as "Ibex Peak 2 port SATA IDE Controlle".Apparently this kernel does not support this device.Unfortunately according to our policy(definitely some dependency on company's softwares installed on this kernel) we can not upgrade our kernel.
I have just installed a NEC 3.0 PCIe board in my CentOs 5 box, but the card is not recognised, and no drivers seem to be loaded for it. lspci says: USB Controller: NEC Corporation Unknown device 0194 (rev 03) The vendor says the board is supported on Linux kernels 2.6.16 and later. uname says my kernel is 2.6.18-194.17.1.el5
How do I get this device to be recognised, and drivers loaded for it?
Basically i want it so that the analogue stick on my PS2 controller, which connects via a USB adaptor and is recognized, correctly controls in game characters. It seems to work fine enough in platformers, at least it does with Banjo Kazooie, but with games like perfect Dark it seem to be trying to move forward and look down at the same time, also backward and look up simultaneously and look sideways and move sideways simultaneously , rendering the game all but unplayable.
I have tried running jscal and, apart from the fact that it seems a bit beyond me, it reports "jscal: missing devicename" when i try to run "jscal -c". Do others out there have there analogue sticks working correctly with games like Perfect Dark, or the James Bond games, for example?
I'm working on a new server and it has an Nvidia SATA array controller with 2 250Gb SATA drives configured in a hardware array. When the first screen comes up I'm entering the option Linux DD for it to prompt me for the drivers but nothing ever happens. The screen says that it's loading a SATA driver for about 15 minutes and then the screen clears and has a plus sign cursor on a black screen. What am I doing wrong? The only driver that came with the HP server are for Redhat 4 and 5 and SUSE, will any of those actually work?
I have an old IBM Xseries 300 server that i can use. So, i am trying to install Centos 5.3, but during the installation , no disk can be found. I have 2 disks (1+1 in mirror) connected to an IBM serveraid PCI card.
I installed Debian Lenny, and it recognize the card (so the disks) immediatly.
I have setup Ubuntu servers as LAMP machines but that's pretty much it.
I need to work on an existing CentOS server that I will see for the first time tomorrow. I am told that, as of right now, it is "just serving the internet." The goal is to set it up to be a primary domain controller by which I mean:
1) A user should be able to login to the server from any of the workstations and then see their server stored documents
2) The clients will be a mixed bag of Linux, Windows and Mac machines
I could use a push in the right direction as to what I need to do to get this all setup. I know how to setup users and home folders (I use webmin typically and I understand that there is a version for CentOS) but clearly there is more that I need to do. I am really curious as to how I would map the necessary drives on the client machines upon login and have the users have automatic access to their data regardless of the client machine they log in to.
I have been trying for a few days to install CentOS 5.4 on an IBM x306 and I cannot get it to properly handle the Adaptec Embedded SATA HostRAID Controller. I have been working with Linux for a few years, but this is new territory for me. I typically use Debian-based distros, but I did some research on the IBM site and found out that RHEL is a supported OS for this machine. So, I decided to give Cent a try. I have some experience with Fedora, so it's not totally foreign to me.
Anyway, I'm a bit confused. Using the IBM RAID utility, I set up a mirrored pair of 1GB SATA HDDs. When I run the Cent installer, it sees the pair as a single array. I am able to partition the array and complete the install, but when I boot into the OS, it sees the drives as 2 separate devices, sda and sdb. I can pull either one of the drives and boot with a single disk, but it doesn't seem to behave as a mirrored pair. If I make changes on sda, they are not replicated to sdb. Also, I can't use the cli or GParted to format the existing space on the array. I get an error either way. I believe this is because Cent doesn't have a driver for the RAID controller, but I don't see why it would work in the installer, but not the installed OS.
My next approach was to start over and attempt to run "linux dd" at the start of the installation. I tried to find the driver for the controller on the IBM site so I could load it when prompted, but couldn't find a newer version than RHEL 4 Update 3 (I'm assuming this would coordinate with CentOS 4.3). I tried it anyway, but when I select the floppy during the setup, it tells me it's not for this version of CentOS. I read several times that there are .img files that might help me in the 'Images' directory of disk one, but I only see diskboot.img, minstg2.img, and stage2.img. I don't think any of these are what I'm looking for. I thought there was supposed to be a drvblock.img or driverdisk.img.
