OpenSUSE Install :: Set Up A 4x750GB OnBoard RAID 10?

May 17, 2010

Now that I set up a 4x750GB OnBoard RAID 10, I'd like to install my 11.2 Suse (w/ GRUB dual boot)from BIOS, I've partitioned my HDD so I have:- Array1 = 30GB HTFS, 30GB XFS, 30GB Solaris, then extended part. for all (each OS) swap, temp, etc ...- Array2 = 30 GB HTFS (DMy Documents); 30 GB (/home); 30 GB (unformated) and then a big part for game install and VMware partition (Win98 for my old games, winXP32, etc ...)As a (sad) matter of fact, instal WinXP64 and/or Vista64 works perfectly. I see the array as partitioned by BIOS, and everything works.

But I can't have my 11.2 (64) SUSE installed on the drive, I have -for now- a VMware for it running ... on Windows :s(while I'd prefere the opposit)When I start w/ Suse11.2 DVD (downloaded), it says it can't install as there is NO HDD !!ok, fine, I plug back a PATA HDD, then I start the install, then I move the partition to the SATABUT, even so, I can't start the Suse ...I then lauch the repare/recovery on the install DVD, but it says that there is no root partition, no SUSE partition to fixe

Hardware :: Stop Or Work Around Onboard SATA Raid Controller

Jun 12, 2010

I bought a used server and it's in great working condition, but I've got a 2-part problem with the onboard raid controller. I don't have or use RAID and want to figure out how to stop or work around the onboard SATA raid controller. First some motherboard specs.: Arima HDAMA 40-CMO120-A800 [URL]... The 4-port integrated Serial ATA Integrated SiliconImage Sil3114 raid controller is the problem.

Problem 1: When I plug in my SATA server hard drive loaded with Slackware 12.2 and linux kernel, the onboard raid controller recognizes the one drive and allows the OS to boot. Slackware gets stuck looking for a raid array and stops at this point -........

Ubuntu :: Onboard Nic Plug Broken Pci Nic Inserted Need 2 Remove Onboard

Sep 8, 2010

I just built a computer and the onboard nic pluggin is loose and won't register or connect right... so I had to put another nic card in pci to connect to wired network for internet. Problem now is its delaying something fierce... i'm thinking if i can manage to uninstall or disable the onboard nic maybe things would work better... problem is i wouldn't know how to do it... I know hardware is connected via a document somewhere in the file system... if I were to delete the file would that disable the nic or would it just reinstall itself on the next boot?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Install On Machine With Intel Raid Controller

Jul 20, 2010

I cannot install 11.3 on a machine with an intel raid controller I have tried with raid 1 using the card and then setting the disks to individual raid 0 and letting suse raid them. With the card doing it the machines crashes as soon as it tries to boot the first time, with suse doing the raid I just get 'GRUB' on the screen It seems a lot of people are having similar problems, does any one have any pointers. 11.2 installs fine. I would try and do a bug report but every time I go to the page it's in Czech

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Get 11.3 To Recognize Onboard Webcam?

Aug 3, 2010

I totally wiped out my OSX on my Imacs, in favor of OpenSuse 11.3, and right now, while 11.3 recognizes almost everything, I am searching for a command that lists the hardware available on my Imacs. Is there such a command available, and what is it. I am trying to get 11.3 to recognize my onboard webcam.

OpenSUSE Install :: Raid Is Not Recognized

Dec 14, 2009

I have got a mid-aged server which i upgraded with a simple SATA-Raid-Controller with a VT6421A chipset.I attached two Samsung 750 GB Hard disks and created directly after the POSt screen a nice Raid 1 array. Ubuntu will recognize it as well as windows (which I would never ever use... ;-)).SuSE 11.1 (we need this OS for confirmity) will simply just recognize both disks in the partitions overview. The point "RAID" remains empty.

Are there any hints out there how I can enable the whole raid stuff in open suse? Do I need to integrate other drivers / modules to get thinks working?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Microphone Config With Onboard Sound?

Apr 12, 2011

I have the MCP55 HD Audio on board. Is there a way to configure the mic to mono, 16 bit with 16000Hz sampling as a system input. The signal will be read by the installed program pocketsphinx_continuous.

This is not to make recordings. I can make these settings in KRecord/KDE3. This is for the system input. The mic works with the program and KRecord.

Or must a compatible sound card be installed?

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting Raid PowerEdge SC 1430?

Feb 5, 2010

A friend of mine gave me an old Dell PowerEdge SC 1430 Tower Server. It has three hard-drives in it, that are about 160 GB each. The system had a Promise FastTrak TX1430 Raid card in it, and I am not sure. Would that be a hardware RAID, or would you consider that a BIOS Raid?In any event, have the very latest OpenSuse 11.2 install DVD.I can boot from the DVD, do a fresh install and the system starts where I can sign on as the user. When I look at the starting parition, it has /dev/sda /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc ... each being a hard drive. These are just listed under the hard-drives, not under RAID.

The problem is that when I cold shut-down the machine, and restart from a power-up, the system comes up and cannot find the boot disk. So, Obviously I am doing something wrong.I am used to having 1 or 2 drives in a machine, just SATA drives, and no raid at all. I have no experience installing Linux on a machine with RAID, again not sure if this is BIOS or Hardware RAID.

Ubuntu Networking :: New 9.1 Install - Onboard Rhine II Not Working

Mar 14, 2010

This is my first attempt switching to Ubuntu from Windows, and I am having some trouble getting the on-board ethernet to work in Ubuntu 9.1. I have a MSI KM2M Combo-L VIA KM266 and VT8235 Chipset which uses the Rhine II chipset. I am trying to use the onboard ethernet, however it does not connect to the network after installing Ubuntu, although the driver appears to have been automatically installed. I also tried this with several other network cards (Intel, Dlink, Netgear) with various chipsets, but none seem to work.

Our network Netgear switch/router has DCHP enabled, and all of the Windows computers connect just fine. This is true even when we plug another computer into the ethernet cable serving the Ubuntu computer. When I manually configure the IP address, it shows the network connection as connected, but it is unable to ping and/or connect to the internet (except for localhost and the assigned IP address). I used 192.168.11 as the IP, as the netmask, and as the gateway. Below are several commands, that I've run to provide some additional information (using auto eth1).

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.2 On Existing Nvidia RAID?

Apr 6, 2010

I'm having some (well, a lot actually) of problems trying to get OpenSUSE 11.2 installed on my home PC. I am attempting to set up a dual boot configuration with Windows 7 installed on an bios Nvidia RAID 0.I was able to shrink the partition in Windows, and rebooted onto the net install for OpenSUSE (the MD5 validated DVD install failed multiple burns with "Repository not found"). I get into the graphical installer portion with no problems off the net install CD. However, the installer is not recognizing that there is an existing RAID 0. It lists the 2 SATA disks in the RAID separately. I can click on SDA1, and both SDB and SDB1 and it shows the disks, but does not recognize any existing partitions. If I click on SDA I get an immediate segfault in YaST and drop back to the text mode installer menu. It is loading the nv_sata module just fine.

From forum searches and google it seems that this is not usually a problem. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 with the Nvidia Nforce 570 chipset running an AMD X2 64 3800+. Removing the stripeset and redoing it as Linux software RAID is not an option, I do not have enough space for a total backup/restore. Anything I do has to be nondestructive to the existing Windows installation.I really want to have a linux installation but between the DVD installer failing and now this issue I am about ready to give up on it.

OpenSUSE Install :: DPT PM3334UW RAID Device Driver Available?

Aug 14, 2010

I am hoping there is somebody out there who might recall DPT hardware and be able to get it to work under Linux. DPT were bought up by Adaptec but made great SCSI cards. The PM3334UW is a true hardware raid device which I have been using in SOHO environment for the last 7 years or so with IBM Warp 4.52 (MCP2). The box, although legacy hardware is sound and I wish to keep it running but hoped to have an openSUSE option. Unfortunately I cannot find a driver for the SCSI RAID card. There are a good deal of posts concerning eata_dma.c and other eata based drivers as possibles but when I load the eata driver that is available when loading openSUSE 11.3 I am asked for parameters and I haven't a clue what these should be.

OpenSUSE Install :: How Comes Centos Has Drivers For Raid Chip

Feb 3, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: On Dell Server With Cerc Raid

Aug 11, 2011

I want to install opensuse on a poweredge 830 server with a cerc 1.5/6 hardware raid configuration, since i have no previous experience with linux I'm having a hard time to grasp the way to do things. But i would love if someone can direct me to a good tutorial or document where i can learn more. At this moment I'm stuck (though i decided to install using default options yast gave me, just to test) with partitioning and RAID.

So this is what i would like to know:

*Server currently has a windows 2003 installed but I don't need it so actually that is going to go away
*this is a small network, less than 30 users
*Server is going to be used to authentificate users through openldap, also is going to serve files (since we do printing many of them would be 100mb +), and also depending on performance may be used as printing server too (i know that's a lot of tasks but besides printing other functions won't be used that much)
*Server has 2 phisical HD that i want to use with RAID 5 or 6 there are drivers for that already in dell's webpage
* I'm installing openSUSE 11.4


1.- Does linux really needs a dedicated swap partition
2.- If so how raid works with that, is it going to be mirrored too (I don't think)
3.- Is it better to install linux in 1 HD only with no swap partition, leave the other blank and install raid after linux is up
4.- What's up with ext units, in the sense that now it looks like there are too many units.. not only the simple 'os, data' i'm used to

1.- I just want to have a linux installation with raid 5 configuration using 2 hd

Debian Hardware :: Onboard Dell 0K095G PS/2 Will Not Work After Install

Feb 26, 2014

I bought a used Dell Precision T3500 after I had a positive experience with it at a previous job. Since my AMD motherboard died recently, I'm interested in using the Dell as my full time machine.

However, I cannot seem to get my PS/2 keyboard to work; this is crucial as I use a fully mechanical keyboard and need my N-key rollover that PS/2 provides.

The weird thing is that the PS/2 keyboard works perfectly during a text-based installation of Debian GNU/Linux. When I boot into a newly installed system if I press any key on my keyboard my Caps lock and scroll lock LEDs flash and no keystrokes are registered (?).

OpenSUSE Install :: Raid Root Partition Not Mounting After Updates

Jan 27, 2010

I'm having some problems with a hosted openSUSE 11.2 server. It was running fine until I did a "zypper up" to apply patches. This included a kernel update.

On reboot the root partition does not mount the / partition giving the following error:

Unrecognized mount option "defaults.noatime", or missing value mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/md2.

Through an Ubuntu rescue disk (this is what Hetzner provides) the disk can be mounted without problems.

( I installed a fresh openSUSE 11.2 with a similar configuration and got the same results after the update)

The server is a hosted installation from Hetzner in Germany with just the basics for LAMP setup.

The disk setup is as follows using software raid1:
swap /dev/md0 (/dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1)
/boot /dev/md1 (/dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2)
/ /dev/md2 (/dev/sda3 /dev/sdb3)

OpenSUSE Install :: RAID Driver In Dual Boot System?

Feb 11, 2010

I just installed SUSE 11.2 as dual-boot with WinXP on an older system that has a 160GB PATA drive and a 500GB SATA RAID drive. I left about 80GB on the PATA drive unpartitioned to accommodate SUSE. During the initial installation attempt, SUSE was determined to install on the RAID drive instead of the PATA drive, so I disabled the SATA drivers in the BIOS to force the installation on the PATA drive. This was successful, but now there is no access to the RAID drive from SUSE because there is no driver and it is not mounted. I reactivated the SATA drivers in the BIOS and the RAID drive reappeared in WinXP with everything intact. The SATA drives now appear in SUSE under Hardware Information as "/dev/sdb" and "/dev/sdc" and the listed driver is "sata_sil".

So how do I get the RAID drivers installed in SUSE and then mount the drive so it can be browsed/modified from Dolphin? I would also like to be able to browse/change this drive from other computers on my home network through samba, just like with WinXP.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Dell SAS / SATA Virtual Disks (RAID 1)

Sep 17, 2010

I have a Dell Studio XPS running openSUSE 11.2 with dual mirrored disks (using Dell's SATA controller). Does anyone know how I can set up automatic monitoring of the disks so that I will be informed if either fail? I think smartd might be what I need here. Is that correct? I added:
/dev/sda -a -d sat -m <my email>
/dev/sda -a -d sat -m <my email>

smartd is running, but how do I know that it will report what I need? I also have a client with a Dell PowderEdge SC440 with SAS 5/iR also running openSUSE 11.2. They also require automatic monitoring. There doesn't seem to be a SAS directive for smartd. I notice that the newer release says it does support SAS disk. I upgraded to 5.39. On restart (with DEVICESCAN as the directive) I get the following in /var/log/messages for my SAS RAID disk.

OpenSUSE Install :: Mounting Software RAID In Rescue Mode

Feb 27, 2011

I have a software RAID 1 (mirroring) on my 2 hard drives configured through OpenSuse 11.3 installer. When I boot from the OpenSuse 11.3 install DVD in rescue mode, the RAID isn't recognized, ie attempting to mount /dev/md0 results in 'bad superblock' messages. I can still mount individual disks in the array though (/dev/sda1, /dev/sdb1, I did it read-only so not to corrupt the array). I also tried booting from the Centos 5.5 install DVD in rescue mode on the same computer and it has no problems finding the RAID 1. I was able to mount /dev/md0. Is the OpenSuse 11.3 install DVD in the rescue mode not supposed to find the RAID 1 or am I doing something wrong here?

OpenSUSE Install :: Dmraid Vs Mdadm And RAID Status Monitoring?

Apr 22, 2011

I'm pretty new to FakeRAID vs JBOD in a software RAID, and could use some help/advice. I recently installed 11.4 on a brand new server system that I pieced together, using Intel RAID ICH10r on an ASUS P8P67 Evo board with 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU. I have two RAIDs setup, one RAID-1 mirror for the system drive and /home, and the other consists of four drives in RAID-5 for a /data mount.

Installing 11.4 seemed a bit problematic. I ran into this problem: [URL]... I magically got around it by installing from the live KDE version with all updates downloaded before the install. When prompted, I specified I would like to use mdadm (it asked me), however it proceeded to setup a dmraid. I suspect this is because I have fake raid enabled via the bios. Am I correct in this? Or should I still be able to use mdadm with bios raid setup?

Anyways, to make a long story short, I now have the server mostly running with dmraid installed vice mdadm. I have read many stories online that seem to indicate that dmraid is unreliable versus mdadm, especially when used with newer SATA drives like I happen to be using. Is it worth re-installing the OS with the drives in JBOD and then having mdadm configure a linux software raid? Are their massive implications one way or another on if I do or do not install mdadm or keep dmraid?

Finally, what could I use to monitor the health and status of a dmraid? mdadm seems to have it's own monitoring associated with it when I was glazing over the man pages.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Boot LiveCD When Hard Drive Mode Is RAID

Jul 29, 2010

I burned the live version of OpenSUSE 11.3 (Gnome, 32bit) to a CD to test the compatibility of an HP Pavilion p6510f. Although Xubuntu 10.4 booted up fine, OpenSUSE did not. A message about RAID would appear (too briefly to read) and then the computer would reboot.I checked in the BIOS and found that the SATA drive has 3 modes: IDE, RAID and AHCI. The hard drive was set to RAID.

When I changed the hard drive mode to IDE, I was able to run the OpenSUSE live CD; but the change ruined my Windows installation. Windows doesn't boot under IDE or RAID mode. (I have reset the mode to RAID and am restoring the Windows installation.) Is there an option/argument that I can pass to the kernel so that OpenSUSE will work under RAID mode? (Since Xubuntu 10.4 was able to do it, I'm assuming OpenSUSE should be able to.)
