ASUS P4P800 Motherboard partially supported by suse 9.1


hey everybody,

I am planning on installing Suse 9.1 Professional Edition on my system. These are the specs..Please tell me if you have run this type setup with Suse 9.1 or earlier and let me know if you have any problems..my primary concern is on the motherboard..as it is only "partially" supported by suse 9.1 . what does that mean? Please help.

ASUS P4P800 Deluxe
Pentium 4 2.6Ghz 800FSB
512MB PC3200 Corsair XMS ram running in dual channel mode
80GB IBM 120GXP hard drive
SB Live
Nvidia Geforce 2 MX 400 32MB

currently my onboard NIC is not supported, so I will purchase a NIC that supports Suse.

Please let me know IF this setup can run Suse or possibly any other version of Linux? I am fairly new to Linux.

TIA.

Matt

I run a P4P800-E Deluxe and have had no problems with Slackware, Debian, Mandrake, or SuSE. The driver you need for the onboard Marvell Yukon is "sk98lin".

Oh yes, SuSE 9.1 didn't like my SB Live card.

Hope this helps!

What kernel did you use? Or did you use the kernel that came with Suse?

Thank you for your reply.

My expectation would be that this setup would be fine. Most mobos are OS-neutral, and if this is the equipment you already own, I'd say you should just go ahead and install Suse.

Also, Welcome to LQ Matt. I also am using Suse v9.1 and in my view it's a very nice distro, and if you are relatively new to Linux, I think you will be impressed. -- J.W.

I used the standard 2.6.x kernel that came with the SuSE distro, then I upgraded after the installation.

Same as me (I run Slackware 10.0), with the 2.6.7 kernel I just made the patch from the driver installer, if you need, download the drivers from here -> http://www.marvell.com/drivers/drive...dId=107&pId=10
