OpenSUSE Hardware :: Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3L Motherboard And An Intel Core I5 750 Processor
Dec 26, 2009
I'm about to upgrade a server for a local non-profit, and am looking at a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3L motherboard and an Intel Core i5 750 processor. Does anyone have any observations or experiences with SUSE on this platform?
I recently set up a Samba Server on a new Gigabyte (Desktop) Motherboard with support for SATA 3.0. I used a new 1T SATA 3.0 (6Gb) Hard Drive. The system is performing poorly, seems to have problems both opening and closing files (*.dbf).
Also will hold a file as open periodically (may be a Samba Issue).
Does the O/S have to support this standard, or is it a function of the Hardware...?
i have a OpenSUSE 11.3 with Gnome desktop ( core i5 processor, 2 GB DDR3 RAM ) want to run memtest, plz advice me which prog is best for it and where to find documentation or videos.Moreover is there any tests for motherboard / processor
I would like to run my own server, and I'm thinking of buying a dedicated machine to run it on. I checked out the dell website for a cheap machine to run it on (I don't need high performance - just a personal file server running a few hard drives, and a web/mail server). I noticed that they have some cheap models in their server line that are as cheap as a desktop. Compare:
The main difference I see between the desktops and the servers is the use of the Core or Xeon processor, and also, the servers tend to have lower RAM.if I am looking for value, should I opt for a low end desktop or a low end server to run a personal server? Also, what advantage does the Xeon processors and Dell server line have over the desktop models that make it better for running a server?
! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel� 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...
I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...
I've installed Suse linux 11.3 (kernel 18.104.22.168-0.5) on my brand new computer HP all in one 5130. Everything worked incredibly well : Wifi, wireless keyboard and mouse, sound, webcam.. There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :
Code: X.org X Server 1.8.0 Release Date: 2010-04-02 [ 15.124] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 [ 15.124] Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX [ 15.124] Current Operating System: Linux linux-7xhd 22.214.171.124-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 x86_64 [Code]....
I recently read in a forum that by default the Linux kernel only activates one of two cores in a dual core processor. Searching online gave one option to find out and that was the mpstat command. I therefore ran the command and got the following output.As the result says, it shows only 1 cpu. I was wondering what I could do to activate both cores in my machine, and whether doing so was going to cause me any problems.
I'm finishing setting up my new computer.I'm installing ubuntu 10.04.The motherboard is a gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3When I plug the computer into my stereo, I get a horrible scratchy buzzing.How can I get rid of it?More info on hardware: Quote:lspci -v | less gives a lot of output, including this:Quote:

I have installed mandriva 2008 spring edition. In my home i am using bsnl broadband connection. But i cannot install drivers in mandriva linux. In ethernet properties it is showing me that unknown device.
I have decided to do away with windows for the obvious reasons. I have carried out a new instal of Ubuntu 10.04. on a formatted HDD in a Gigabyte GA-510UD atom mother board and have found that I can't install the M/B drivers from the indtall disk.
I want to start using Ubuntu again but I gave up ages ago trying to get it to work with my Gigabyte EP45-DQ6 motherboard.I cant run from disc and I can't install.If I try to run it just takes me to a black screen with blinking cursor and that's all it does.If I try to install, basically the same.I can't get anywhere doing anything, so where do I start?How can I get it working on my system?By the way, this is with the latest Ubuntu.No, it's not a corrupt download or burn. I tried to download and burn, didn't work.I ordered a free cd, it did the same.This is an issue that is NOT related to the disc or the download of Ubuntu.
I have server with Xeon E5620, 8 GB RAM, three 1TB hard drives which are in sw RAID 5 and two 250GB disk which are in sw RAID 1, all of this on Intel S5500BC motherboard. Installation of opensuse 11.0 11.1 11.2 and Enterprise suse 11 was successfull. After grub menu i get blank screen. It`s blank for about 60 - 120 sec and then appear Suse loading page and loading bar. This also happens if i change to text mod. But in text mod i can see what`s going on. First 5-10 lines are informations about partitions and then i get output just like on this link. Yfrog Image : yfrog.com/5nimag0108djIf i hit any key (in graph and text mode) booting will continue to opensuse loading screen and loading bar.I have tried installations on one workstation and one server and didn`t have this problem.
I could change and manipulate all the bios features before I put an administrator password on the bios. Now that I have put a password on the bios, even when I log-in with the correct password 90% of the motherboard settings are locked and un-changeable.
Got this new motherboard and it's running 11.4 of Opensuse and it works great. Even got the DVI working with the monitor with help of instructions I found here. However the sound is poor and the volume controls just as bad. According to the motherboard docs it has THX Tru Studio sound pro, a Intel H67 (B3) chipset. Six audio ports. And the chipset integration by Realtek ALC837. I have tried to find this information in the sound setup with no luck. What was selected was the Intel model (no other specifics was found). According to the Alsamixer it says HDA Intel PCH and the card and chip is set as PulseAudio. What should the sound card be set to other than Intel?
I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 uname -r 2.6.28-11-generic
Checked cable/network with 386Box running Ubuntu 8.04 all OK. Could not get Realtek 8168 on mother board to work on Gigabyte H55M-S2H motherboard. I tried to install r8168 driver but no luck ... so I bought another Linux compatible card which turned out to be a RTL8139c (eth1) and the driver I am using on this is card is 8139too.
My preference would be to get the motherboard ethernet working but perhaps the card may be easier to get working. Anyway after searching the net for ideas and trying different things I've just about given up. I have reinstalled Ubuntu today so eth0 is back to using the r8169 driver. I'm no expert so my attempts at following other recipies have so far failed. From what I have read the 8139too driver should have worked with the RTL8139C chip so I have run out of ideas. I must be doing something wrong.
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 it�s 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.
When i viewed the cpuinfo file (using command: vi /proc/cpuinfo ), i found that there are listings for 4 processors( i.e 4 sets of listings each one starting with item : processor - 0 ; processor -1 and so on..). Each of them have similar data among which one is "cpu cores" which is 2 for all.. How do i make sense of this data.. 4 processors with 2 cores each ? Also, what could be this hardware be classified as : dual core? quad core ?...
P.s: each of these processor listings also have an item called "siblings" which is 2 for all... Just thought i'll include this here because i felt it may be relevant to this question..
I have been unable to get both opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 32 bit versions work properly on my DELL Latitude E6410 laptop. With both 11.2 and 11.3 KDE Live CDs I get no graphical display when I attempt to boot into the Live system. VESA mode does not help either, only text mode works. So I installed the system in text mode but during the first boot the screen went blank again.
One peculiar thing is that 11.1 installs and boots fine, what gives? Is this even supported or I shouldn't even try to bother getting this setup to work? Has anyone been able to run opensuse 11.3 on a Core i7 integrated Intel graphics system with X system working?
I am looking to buy a laptop for my college years, so I would like to buy one that will serve me many years ahead. Currently the only laptop I have found is the System76 Serval laptop, but they do not ship to Europe.
Another laptops I have found are the Toshiba A505 series, but they are not currently supported by the latest version of Ubuntu.
I anyone knows of a good laptop (must have Corei7 processor and Nvidia/ATI powerful card fully supported by the proprietray drivers), please share your knowledge here.
