Hi guys... I'm a total noob to linux, but I guess I had luck this time. I've a Core 2 duo (6400) and a mobo intel DG965WH. I managed to install openSUSE 10.1 and now 10.2.

10.1 did throw on me the CD not found problem. I solved that by copying the entire distro in a NTFS partition which I could access during the install process *barf*. Of course that to be able to try this you have to have windows installed in other partition.

Then I got the version 10.2, which worked just perfect... everything goes smooth but the videos, which are not working so good as they should.

Hope this helps!

Mandriva 2007 Should Work

Installing Linux was next to impossible on my dg965wh motherboard with IDE optical driva and SATA hard drive. I tried Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 and even Ubunto 7.04, all with no success.

You definitely have to set the Drive Settings in the BIOS to 'IDE'.

I finally got Mandriva 2007 working by adding the additional parameters:

all-generic-ide pci=nommconf

to the install options. Then after the install you have to make sure to modify the lilo boot so that the above parameters are provided.

Once you do this though, you won't be able to dual boot. You need the BIOS settings on IDE to boot Windows XP, and so you'll have to monkey with the BIOS every time you reboot before you even make your operating system choice to ensure the boot process will work smoothly.

For further information check:

IIRC it is because of the JMICRON controlled IDE. It may not be your distro of choice, but you might want to try the new Beta 5 of MEPIS 6.5 There is a specific entry in the live CD menu for motherboards with JMICRON. If nothing else, it should be a good test to see if that is the issue.

I had successfully installed FC6 guys

My system is
Intel core2due E6400
Motherboard - Intel DG965RY
RAM 512 MB(667 bus)
HDD is PATA 80GB

i did GUI installation
but i did only minimal installation
i mean i jus used 3 out of the 7 cd's
so am unable to do anythin wth the FC6 even doin updates saya that thr r dependancy problem sort of things..

THE FOLLOWING POST WAS BY shrikant.odugoudar

Here is how its done.
1) Go to your BIOS and change Advanced->Drive Configuration->AHCI(will be IDE initially)
2) Insert the Fedora(Debian) cd/dvd into your drive.
3) Start installation by typing 'linux a),b) & c)'
a) all-generic-ide
b) irqpoll
c) pci=nommconf
4) Once the installation is completed, c) will be added automatically to the kernel parameter, you just add a) to the kernel by modifying /boot/grub/grub.conf. DON'T ADD b)

I've successfully tried and tested this using FC6 on my motherboard. FYI my specs in my sig.
Hope this helps

I found similar problems with slackware 11.0 installation. I used test26.s kernel included on CD-rom and installation went just fine. But the troubles was just the same as with knopppix 5.1 live cd. System didn't detect my old ATA IDE drives, though there is an IDE connector.

Well I was not satisfied because I couldn't see my old ATA drives. So decided to compile new kernel. With kernel 2.6.20.4 it was quite easy. It seems the only solution for me.

Short instructions for interested:
get new kernel, unpack it
then, to save time, i copied .config from already installed 2.6.18 kernel and run make oldconfig so settings from older kernel was set
then I try make menuconfig (make xconfig runs on X) where I set all about Intel and Marvell

details about building your own kernel is at http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/K...ild-HOWTO.html

hope this might help someone

G'day,

I've been trying to install Ubuntu 7.04 on my computer (MSI P965 Neo2-F motherboard, E6600 processor, with two SATA hard drives). The computer is currently running windows.
Like a few others I have no trouble starting the install CD, but I've found the installation gets stuck at the step where the CD-ROM is supposed to be detected.

I tried pointing the installer to a copy of the Ubuntu installation CD (I copied to the hard drive [c:\ubuntu], using xcopy)
During the install process, when the installer asked for the CD-ROM module, I switched to the virtual console (Alt+F2) and typed the following:

mkdir /cdrom /dev/cdroms
cd /dev/cdroms
ln -s ../hd0,1/ubuntu cdrom0

Then switched back to the install console (ALT+F1), and told the installer the CD-ROM module was at /dev/cdroms/cdrom0, but the installation still failed this step.

I’m fairly new to Linux, so may have something wrong in the code I tried.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I added the parameters found on the Gentoo page and was successful in getting past the CDROM drivers problem.
I was trying to load FC5 and was unsuccessful until I started the install with;

linux all-generic-ide

My next problem is the ATI driver .....

I am surprised to see Linux users are scared by the new technology by a thread like this one.

I was misinformed similarly and cautiously installing Linux to a newly assembled PC with

Core 2 Duo E6700
2Gb of 800Mhz memory
Abit AW9D-Max mobo (with Intel 975X chipset)
XFX geforce 7600GT video card
two Sata II 500Gb disks

I have not found a Linux refused to go in there.

The system I have installed are

XP
Ubuntu 7.04
Puupy 2.1.4
Mepis 6.0.4
Slax 6.0.0
FC6
Debian 4ro
Yoper
DSL
OpenSuse 10.3
FC7
Parsix 0.90r0
Mandriva Desktop 4
PCLinuxOS 2007
LG3D

I did have a couple of distros having problems in the install but as I am booting the iso from directly from the hard disk to save burning CDs I could not be sure the problem is related to the hardware yet.

I was anticipating to run into trouble but met none so far. Mind you this may be I am using the current versions of the distros.

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

While installing FC6, at one step it will ask for entering any optional Kernel parameters,
in that "pci=nommconf" would have been already added, so u jus add "all-generic-ide" to it....


ELSE


I have to boot into my FC6 in Append or Command mode to give a different Kernel Load parameter as follows:
"pci=nommconf all-generic-ide\boot"
and then open the following file under root account:
""
"/boot/grub/grub.congif"

The Kernel parameter u can find is something like
"root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVoloo pci=nommconf rhgb quiet"

All you need to do is jus change it as follows
"root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVoloo pci=nommconf rhgb quiet all-generic-ide\boot"
