Fedora Installation :: Install FC 12 Or 13 On An HP DL380 G6 Server

Jul 7, 2010

I'm trying to install FC 12 or 13 on an HP DL380 G6 server. The problem occurs just after the image is loaded off of the DVD. After a bunch of boot messages scroll up the screen, a final message appears stating waiting for hardware to initialize. At that point, the video signal goes away and never comes back. I have to power cycle to regain control. If I select the option to do an install with a basic video driver, the installation proceeds beyond that message and I can finish the installation, however, my graphics resolution is 800x640 and I can't change it. Is there a reported compatibility problem with the HP server and FC? Is there something I can do so that I can get past the failure and be able to operate with a decent resolution?

Server :: Debian On HP ProLiant DL380 - NIC Driver Installation - Firmware-bnx2

Apr 5, 2011

I have a HP ProLiant DL380 server and I am trying to install Debian on it.

I had an error that said dhcp configuration failed at the base installation and Debian found my NICs but asked for driver.

I've Googled it and found out that I need to install required Broadcom NetExtreme NIC drivers.

There are images that 3rd people have created but I don't want to use them as it will be a server.

Another way to install them is to download .deb package and install it from a removable media when asked.

So I went ahead and did an expert install mode and choosed adding packages from a media so an option appeared for me to install stuff from removable media now.

Each time I choose it, my flash drive's lights are blinking but then I am getting an error says this package can not be installed are you sure to install a non signed package.

I say yes at that stage but I still can't install and then it says this is probably happening because of kernel version miss match.

I downloaded latest stable copy of Debian and also downloaded the stable squeeze copy of the driver from official Debian site too. [url]

Is this a kernel mismatch between my Deb. version and the driver?

And after many try my server started hanging at detecting network hardware stage, how can I deal with this?

Also finally I started to get this...

[url]

Is this happening because I am using wrong architecture CD?

I have i386 image and my server has 2 x Pentium 3 processor.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partitioning On New HP DL380 G6?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu on a brand new HP DL380 G6 server. Any time I go through the install, it freezes at 33% of formatting the first partition. I have tried 9.04 server disk, 9.10 server disk, and 9.10 desktop (all AMD64). I'm running out of ideas to troubleshoot. The server is listed as supported by Ubuntu 9.04. Here's more of the hardware:

2x quad-core Intel Xeon X5550 procs
16GB of RAM
5x 300GB SAS drives in RAID-5 array (1.2TB useable)

I just finished installing with the 9.10 alternate install disk (AMD64), and after reboot, it doesn't seem to find the boot partition and just sits there after attempting to boot from CD and hard disk.

Ubuntu Servers :: Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 Refusing To Install 10.10

Mar 29, 2011

I have a Compaq server, as per the title, and I wish to install Ubuntu Server onto it but ran aground when I found it got to trying to run the installer after the CD Boot menu, it just stopped there, waited 180 seconds (as per the error's details) and then locked up with the Caps Lock & Scroll Lock lights on the keyboard flashing.

Now I know it's not the server, as I have installed other OSes onto it in the past, including an older version of Ubuntu server (9.04), I did try and re-install the 9.04 version but the CD I had was too scratched up and got to a point in the installer (copying files) where it just failed cos it couldn't read the disc.

The specs of the thing are:

Dual PentiumIIIs 1.4GHz
512mb RAM (keep meaning to upgrade it)
3x 18.2GB 10k SCSI HDDs (Storage)

[code]...

Not sure what else is in there, but the full specs are on the web...

General :: CD Not Found When Installing RHEL 5.4 On HP Proliant DL380 G3?

Mar 3, 2010

I've been asked by my boss to install RHEL 5.4 onto a HP Proliant DL380 G3 which we have here. Now I'm a total linux newbie but can figure my way around most things but this has got me stumped.

I have downloaded the RHEL 5.4 i386 DVD iso and burnt it OK. But when I boot from the CD in the server it doesn't recongise it. I put the DVD into any other server/PC and it boots fine. The server also boots fine from other CDs'DVDs?

Anyway, I thought I would try the boot.iso instead so I burnt this and the DL380 boots fine. I try the default install option, select country/keyboard layout/ select local CDROM as the install type and this is the problem now.

It ejects the boot CD so I put in the RHEL 5.4 DVD and it keeps saying:- the red hat enterprise linux server cd was not found in any of your cdrom drives I have reburnt the DVD and same problem. I have also tried creating a VM with the DVD and this boots and installs fine in VMWare so I know the DVD is good.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Seem To Turn Off The X Server To Install?

May 13, 2009

I am new to fedora and linux. I have spent the past three days figuring out how to install nvidia drivers for linux. I figured out how to install the drivers but I can't seem to turn off the x server to install it. Everyone says to go to init 3 or what ever, but when I try doing that I just guess this message saying powernow-k8: Your BIOS does not provide ACPI _PSS objects in a way that Linux understands. Please report this to the Linux ACPI maintainers and complain to your BIOS vendor. powernow-k8: Your BIOS does not provide ACPI _PSS objects in a way that Linux understands.

Please report this to the Linux ACPI maintainers and complain to your BIOS vendor.

and i also tried sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop but it just says command not found. my gdm is in the usr/sbin directory idk if that has to be changed or not but i'm really new to this and I am completely lost.

Ubuntu Installation :: Server Install On Laptop Doesn't Install Pcmcia Support?

Jan 12, 2011

I am installing Ubuntu Server 10.10 on and old Dell Laptop. The network connection is an Xircom PCMCIA card.During install, the computer sees and interacts via the network just fine. For example, I can ping the gateway. Also, the command "lspcmcia" works and show the Xircom card.When I reboot, however, there is no network access, and the "lspcmcia" command is not there. When I try "lspcmcia" the OS helpfully tells me that I can "apt-get" pcmciautils, but, without network access, that fails.I tried adding the install cdrom to apt using "apt-cdrom" and then tried to "apt-get" pcmciautils and it got further, installing some dependencies, but acted like it still was unable to locate the pcmciautils package.

Fedora Installation :: Install Fedora 12 I386 Using CD#1 For A Minimal Install?

Dec 19, 2009

I'm trying to install Fedora 12 i386 using CD#1 for a minimal install. For that during installation I selected only Base. For some reason when I started installation it was trying to install 432 packages (Base has got about 80 or so packages). i can understand there might be some dependencies, but really that much? I kept going with the installation of 432 packages, but it finally failed on gtk2-immodule-xim-2.18.3-19.fc12.i686.rpm.I need just minimal install, so I can install LXDE later on by myself.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Setup: Warning: Attempting To Install GRUB To A Partition Instead Of The MBR - Install - Lvm - Luks - Raid - Karmic Server

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running Karmic Server with GRUB2 on a Dell XPS 420. Everything was running fine until I changed 2 BIOS settings in an attempt to make my Virtual Box guests run faster. I turned on SpeedStep and Virtualization, rebooted, and I was slapped in the face with a grub error 15. I can't, in my wildest dreams, imagine how these two settings could cause a problem for GRUB, but they have. To make matters worse, I've set my server up to use Luks encrypted LVMs on soft-RAID. From what I can gather, it seems my only hope is to reinstall GRUB. So, I've tried to follow the Live CD instructions outlined in the following article (adding the necessary steps to mount my RAID volumes and LVMs). [URL]

If I try mounting the root lvm as 'dev/vg-root' on /mnt and the boot partition as 'dev/md0' on /mnt/boot, when I try to run the command $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0, I get an errors: grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea. grub-setup: error: Embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.

Somewhere in my troubleshooting, I also tried mounting the root lvm as 'dev/mapper/vg-root'. This results in the grub-install error: $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0 Invalid device 'dev/md0'

Obviously, neither case fixes the problem. I've been searching and troubleshooting for several hours this evening, and I must have my system operational by Monday morning. That means if I don't have a solution by pretty early tomorrow morning...I'm screwed. A full rebuild will by my only option.

Fedora Installation :: F11 - Graphical Install Fails - Text Install Has No Fdisk

Jun 28, 2009

I have been using Redhat/Fedora for 11 years. I don't understand why Fedora 11, can't even do a vga graphical install, when Windows can.

I tried many parameters, including xdriver=vesa, and it cannot used graphical install.

So, I tried text install, which I have done many times in the past.

However, F11 seems crippled, in that it will NOT do the same install achievable from a graphical install.

It will NOT allow the use of fdisk, and it will NOT allow any selection of any packages.

What is the point of this option?

Even after trying all of this, for a dual boot install, and F11 claims to have installed, there is no grub or equivalent, and the computer just boots windows, just like Fedora 11 did absolutely nothing.

What are the options now? Why is text install so crippled and incomplete? Why is standard VGA mode so hard?

I'm trying to intall Ubuntu 10.04 server 32-bit on an Acer Aspire One D255-1549 netbook. I want to use it as a low power web server I can leave on all the time. The install will not proceed because it cannot detect the NIC and then will not continue past the part were you have to specify the arhive mirror because it can't get on the internet. The install doesn't include the driver for my NIC (Atheros AR8152). Is there a way I can add the driver to the installation image?

Ubuntu Installation :: What Type Of Server Should Install?

Jan 29, 2011

I am going to be setting up my first ubuntu server this week, and I noticed in tutorials, that there are different options for what type of packages you want installed. I know a little bit, like what a DNS server is and such, but I am hoping somebody can shed some more light on the subject.I am pretty sure I won't need Postgresql or a print server, as the purpose of my server is to provide a low end platform that I can work on my php projects. I will be using PHP and mysql. I am also using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 32-bit edition.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install 11.04 Server Via USB Stick

May 5, 2011

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 x64 Server onto a Shuttle XS35GT. The PC has no CD-ROM drive so I have to install via USB.

1. Copy the files to a USB-stick via UNetbootin (WinXP, OSX) or Universal-USB-Installer.exe (WinXP)
2. Boot to the USB-stick in order to install Ubuntu
3. The installer halts at "[!!] Detect and mount CD-ROM" - "Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. Try again to mount the CD-ROM? (Yes/No)"
4. Selecting either option does not help further the install

What I tried:
- Manually fix truncated filenames in /pool/l/linux/*.udeb (see [URL])
- Alt+F2, mount the .iso as a virtual CD-ROM under /media/iso (no use since the 11.04 installer does not allow manual chosing of the CD-ROM) (see [URL])
- Expert mode install (does not show anything special) (as suggested at [URL])

I had this exact same problem with 10.10 but someone was able to lend me a USB-CD-Drive that time.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Server Amd64

Jul 12, 2011

For whatever reason, I cannot for the life of me install server amd64 on my server machine. I have a quad-core phenom 1st gen. USB/CD/HD, it doesn't matter what media its from. It randomly freezes on unpacking or configuring, the steps after configuring the network. If I shutdown, I can sometimes get further, or sometimes its shorter. I can't have it connected to the internet when installing or it goes bonkers. I have tried most of the fixes suggested around the forums, to no avail.

Now here is the crazy thing, I installed Ubuntu 64 Desktop with no problems. So for now, I will continued to install desktop and using tasksel to change it to a server.Oh BTW, I just found out installing desktop works, but I have had this server install problem since Gutsy. The 32bit version installs just fine.
