Question Change new mainboard, how to configure?


Hi,

SInce my mainboard was dead, I replaced a new mainboard: http://www.pcchips.com.tw/M758LT+.html.

I checked with the hardware compatibility list of redhat.com. There is no pcchips.com.tw manufacturer.

Unluckily, there is no email contact nor technical support from PCChips.

The linux can be booted up and I can login. However, I cannot use the mouse and connect to the internet.

How can I fix these problems?

Thanks in advance.

gogo

Ok, page loads now. Doesn't seem a weird board, but you gotta figure out what onboard ethernet you've got. Spose it's in the manual? Have you tried using "mouseconfig"? Post any output from dmesg and or /var/log/messages. Would help.

Have you tried www.pcchips.com There is an email address and a phone number.

Are you using a standard PS/2 mouse or USB? A PS/2 mouse should work.

Does the board have an integraged modem or are you using the ethernet port?

The manual does not (and didn't expect to) say what kind of integrated ethernet controller or modem. Hopefully you might get some technical info from them.

Good luck

Hi,

When I load redhat, there is one [failure] for one service. However, the error is very long and scoll quickly, I cannot know what is it. How can I view it back? And does it relate it the change of a new main board?

Thanks a lot

It's probably one of those Taiwanese everything-on-the-board VIA style mobos. The manufacturer should provide drivers for linux.
BTW the output of the txt file created by

dmesg > dmesg.txt

would help us.
