3.at Mandriva2007-->CDROM module not found
need help immediatly..can anybody help me??
Sorry your first taste of Linux was unpleasant. There will always be added difficulties, no matter what the OS, when trying to use the latest and greatest hardware. Although you have to hand it to the Linux community who managed to surpass even Microsoft in 64 bit support.
Gentoo 2006.1 is confirmed to run the Intel Core 2 Duo in 64 bit support, but it will take a little reading, and a little tweaking (the true cost of open source software).
thanks for ur reply..
i think its not the problem of Core2Due
its for the Motherboard's architechture
i have installed linux mandriva2007mini using 1GB Flash drive..but now i m not able to access the linux by graphical mode.anyway i didnot try using the full version ...u can try it.browse the iso file from the hdd/flash drive when mandriva2007 tell u that cdrom module not found during installation.
Now, that kernel 2.6.19 ( stable ) has been released, does it in anyways support DG965RY motherboard. if it does, when will it be included in the distributions. I see no release date for Debian, Ubuntu doesnt seem to have any release for the next 3 months...
i need linux...its getting more frustrating.
i just hope that i havent made a big mistake in buying the 965 motherboard.
the frustration has given rise to the following thought...
Is there any way, that one can develop a OS(Kernel) in windows(VC++) and release it as open source.
I allready told you, there is no new technology introduced in this motherboard. Because it is so new, Linux has not cought up with it yet so it does not know what technology your motherboard uses. This means it is up to you to do the leg work and tell Linux what is on your motherboard. I gave you a link on how to do this in my previous post.
If you are looking for an easy solution, then use windows; that's what it's there for. If you want Linux bad enough then do it, there is nothing stoping you but yourself.
If you still need help after you have at least attempted to do it yourself, please post back with the specific errors you are getting.
