I'm trying to load CentOS 5.5 on a new server with an Intel S5500BC motherboard using RAID 1. This board has a known problem with RHEL 5.x and the driver disk supplied has a fix. Here is the download for the driver [URL] Under the ESRT2_RHEL4-5_SLES9-1--11_v.13.21.2010_README file are directions in Section 3.1.3 on how to install the RHEL5x megasr driver. This works. The last thing replaces the ACHI driver with the megasr driver (paragraph 15) by loading the megasr.13.21.0614.2010-1-rhel50-u4-all.img in a temp file and then type "./replace_achi.sh". This step doesn't work and it is the critical one as it replaces the achi with megasr in the initrd image.
I have a Intel server board machine that has a on board Matrox cardWith 11.2 the install barfs to text mode configuring the card during install butonce you log in a root and run sax2 it is OK once the machine restartsWith 11.3 it installs ( apparently ) perfectly then just goes to a blackscreen .. the usb keyboard is dead and that is that
I just got a new desktop PC with Intel i5 650 Dual Core 3.2GHz 4M Turbo. I would load up the installation cd, once I selected to install the screen would go blank and nothing happens. Ubuntu 10.4LTS is still in beta1 but it works. I would like to use a non-beta version.Has anyone encontered this and have a work around?
I have installed Fedora 14 on Intel's DH67BL mother board, which has a on board LAN port, Fedora 14 does not detect on-board LAN. Unfortunately, intel does not provide any driver support for linux OS :-(. However, if I install an additional LAN card, Fedora 14 detects it and everything works fine.
I have installed slacware 13 on an intel server, but the IP add that i have assigned does not work. I used ifconfig to check the ip but it shows me 127.0.0.1. I have run netconfig with the ip address i need and restart the machine, but it goes back to 127.0.0.1
I've installed CentOS 5.5 64 bit on a Dell Latitude e6410. This model only contains Intel HD Graphics, not the extra Nvidia card you could also buy in addition. The getinfo output can be found here:[URL] Initially X11 did not work at all (blank screen), but using hints from other posts in this forum I was able to fix this by editing the file xorg.conf using the vesa driver, although I still do not get the native screen resolution of 1200x800 (I alwas get 1152x768).
Now I want to add an external monitor (Samsung Monitor connected via DVI, screen resolution 1680x1050). Unfortunately as soon as I try to configure the dual head mode using the system-config-display tool after restart of the X server there will be the the blank screen again. I tried various drivers with no luck.Has anyone succeeded setting up dual head on an Intel HD Graphics machine? I understand that this hardware is quite new and and would be easier to set up with more recent distros, but I would like to stick to CentOS, but cannot wait for CentOS 6.
I purchased a Sony Vaio with an Intel I3 Processor. I tried to install Ubuntu 9.1 via the CD in Windows. It loads, then when rebooting into Ubuntu... Nothing. I tried to boot off the CD and it boots until I click install.. Then nothing. I tried to install from a flash drive... nothing...
im having problems finalizing the installation of fedora 10 on a new ASUS P5E-VM that uses Intel G35 chipset.
1. i think fedora did not recognize the video driver since all the installation was in text mode and i cannot use "init 5" to load a UI
2. i tried to find some drivers (if any1 can recommend a rpm that i can download i will apprichiate it very much) but could not transfer them to the fedora since i could not mount any USB disk on key in the linux i tried using: mount -t vfat /mnt/usb (after mkdir /mnt/usb)
3. i tried to burn the driver but then could not access the dvd...
4. no internet connection yet... but thats because i cannot access my network drives that are on the USB key as well...
In my office i want to install fedora9, here i'm using SATA DVD-RW drive, when i'm trying to install fedora9 i was getting black screen. I've been tried with different Fedora CD's. where as in that i was able to install Ubuntu. can any one suggest me that how to install fedora9 or 11.Here i'm giving the hardware what we have used.

I was just given a computer from a coworker and installed the latest Slackware version on it. I then installed Gnome Slackbuild and installed the Nvidia driver.I've run alsaconf and it seems to run fine without any errors and unmuted all the channels in alsamixer.
I recently decided to convert my old NAS gox from Gentoo to Unbuntu Server. For reasons that I do not understand I cannot install 10.04 or 11.04 on it. I've downloaded both the i386 and the AMD64 ISO images to the same machine, burned the the image on the same DVDRW drive onto the same CDRW disc but when I try to install on the D945GCLF board, it consistently fails at the same step - Unable to install base system.
The ISO image all indicate a good MD5 sum and I've burned the ISO image at the slowest possible rate. I've even tried moving the image onto a USB drive and installing from it - same error. The D945GCLF has parallel and serial ports disabled; I'm using the SATA drive for the OS and installing from a USB CDROM drive
in order to using the SR-IOV, according the guide HOW_SRIOV [Moderator edit: fixed link.]but i can't got the VFs.so i try to compile the driver :igb-2.4.13 and igbvf1.0.7.but i failed to install them.when i make install the igb-2.4.13 i got the errormsg:root@localhost src]# make installakefile:106: *** Linux kernel source not configured - missing version header file‚[root@localhost src]# i alreadly installed the kernel-headers-2.6.18-194.32.1.el5.x86_64.rpm .some system info maybe needed:Information for general problems.

I own a MB with H55 Chipset and a Core i3 540 with openSuse 11.2.I tried kernel 2.6.32 and 2.6.34 and the newest Xorg delete the xorg.conf and got a fine picture on the screen (same with xorg.conf and device "intel") Even HD MKV is possible. But in KDE I can only open one programm. If I try to open a second programm the desktop disappear and I get the KDM screen and have to login again and the former started programm is gone. Only if I start the programms via an open Terminal window the programms will run. I tried to delete all .kde(x) directories, but itï¿½s the same after restart.Only if I use driver "fbdev" in the xorg.conf I get no problem. But then the screen is very slow.
I cannot install FC11 or FC10 on my Dell XPS One/A2420 machine. Every time I tried to install the Linux operating system, the screen goes black and the computer goes no response. It seems to have something to do with the video card--Intel GMA X4500HD Graphics.
I have a XScale PCIe RS-232 board running in a home built quad core w/ 8GB ram that I want to use to either communicate with a UPS or a RS-232 embedded device. The relevant sections of the output of dmasg are;

I've been trying to install 5.5 here for the past few days, first from USB and now from the CDs, with no success. The problem occurs when I reboot after installing. After the BIOS has done it's thing I'm faced with a blank screen with a blinking cursor at the top left of the screen.
Initially I assumed that this was due to the intel driver problem which is reported in the release notes as a known issue, and the PC I'm installing on has intel graphics. However I have now done a text install and still have the same issue. I'm able to boot up the system using the CentOS live CD, which encounters no issues, and it mounts the local system no problem. After unmounting and remounting to get write access I'm able to change the device entry in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to have the Option "DDC" "false" entry. I can also see that the runlevel is set to 3 in /etc/inittab, still I get the blank screen on attempting to boot.
Any ideas on what might be wrong here? It really sounds like the intel driver problem people have described, and yet I can't even boot in text mode so that doesn't seem to be the case here. Could there be something wrong with the bootloader?
I am running centos5.3 and accidentally uninstalled the gnome gui and some other applications (that I cannot remember unfortunately).I reinstalled gnome but now whenever I go to create a desktop short cut by right clicking a file and selecting send to I receive the following error"Could not load any plug ins,Please verify your installation"I did a search for this error and received no results
I have been able to load CentOS on my computer. I have the motherboard DG41TY from Intel. It seems that the only problem I have is my network card does not work. On the Intel site there is a link to download the network driver for Linux. I did that. It's an rpm file. realtek-r8169-kmp-default-8.004.00_22.214.171.124_0.21-0.i586.rpm is the name. When i right click and say install it tried to connect to the internet for some thing and fails. of coarse it does there not loaded yet. I added a second nic that cent did recognize and got me online. I want to load the on board driver and remove the add on card. When I try to load now I get missing dependencys.
I've just set up a PC with CentOS 5.3 runing on near identical hardware to an existing 5.2 machine. Motherboard is Asus M2A-VM which I discover by chance generally works very well with CentOS. Ethernet is on board Nvidia.The older machine just did run gigabit speed without any intervention at all, rather to my surprise. The newer machine insists on running at 100 Mbit which is annoying as it is connected to a NAS through a gigabit dumb switch.
The obvious difference between the two is that ethtool on the older machine says that supported ports are TP, and so the port is TP. Whereas the newer machine says that supported ports are TP or MII and insists on running MII. I cannot change this with ethtool -s eth0 port tp. Perhaps not too surprisingly, mii-tool says that the supported speeds range up to 100 Mbit.
I have a Biostar TA785GE which as I understand it, has a Realtek 8111DL on-board.
Booting with the default label from the 64-bit installation DVD crashes before any user input, with indecipherable text on-screen (text mode, not X11). Symptoms were the same with the Fedora 11 32-bit installation DVD and the Fedora 12 Live 32-bit CD. Booting with "linux text" mode shows a kernel panic in ":r8169:rtl8169_init_one+0x369/0x9d4" from "pci_device_probe+0x100/0x180".
Disabling the on-board NIC allowed the boot to proceed, and get as far as detecting the hard drive partitions (where I stopped it since Ubuntu is installed).
Ubuntu 9.04 Workstation(Desktop?) install DVD worked fine, and I've installed it and am using it to enter this. From Ubuntu 9.04 on this hardware:

I am using Centos 5.4 on an Intel DG451D Main Board. Two SATA drives in RAID1 mode via the main board's built in AHCI controller. It seems to work just fine but I would like to be able to monitor the state of my drives and controller, especially during a re-build and make configuration changes etc if possible, so new drives can be added etc from within the OS. Is there a way to do this within Centos or am I stuck with using just the BIOS configuration system? Apologies if this is a stupid question - I am pretty new to this and have spent several hours trying to find a solution to my question but to no avail.
Everything has been working fine but I recently installed a sata drive and lvm didn't see it. I'm sure its a driver issue. I'm running centos 5 on a Tyan-Thunder-K8SR-S2881 board. currently centos is running on an IDE drive. I tried several drivers for red hat distos 3 & 4 but no success for my sata drives to work.
I downloaded and mounted debian-8.2.0-amd64-netinst.iso on my work machine's VirtualBox v5.0.12 to check out Debian stable/Jessie's installer and clean installation in case I need to do it soon. I like the new installer compared to 11/24/2011 on my old desktop machine. It is much nicer, fancier with its advanced options, etc.
However, I ran into issues with its "Select and Install" part when I selected desktop managers (e.g., KDE and Gnome) and continued. It failed as shown in [URL] .... images. Why? I tried again from scratch and same thing. If I don't select any and just select non-GUI stuff (e.g, SSH and standard system utilities), then it works but I want the pretty GUI stuff.
