hey fellas does FC 3 64bit support RAID with the Promise Fastrak tx2 S150 ?
meaning not the raid you make when your partitioning your drives, i mean if i make a raid set ie Stripe, with the promise bios setup, will fedora 3 64bit actually see it ? or will it see 2 drives like every other distro ive tried. instead of 1 single drive.
what i will do is make the stripe then install XP on a 10 gig partition, then NOT partition the rest of the drive, then load up FC 3 and see if it see's 1 single unpartitioned drive.
OR it sees sda sdb and sdc if it see's sdc and its hte proper size of my remaining stripe set then im golden but no other distro even mandrake 10.1 64 bit see's it, they all see 2 seperate drive and i must create raid with the linux partitioner.
oh and btw i am very pleased with FC 3 64bit. it see's all my hardware and i dont have any unknown devices. only problem is no NTFS support out of the box. even my 2 usb hard drives it see's no problems.
plus trying to install the nvidia display drivers has proven to be impossible with my limited linux skills.
i boot up to init 1 and can start the installer but it says there is no precompiled kernel on the nvidia ftp then it says i need to do something in the gcc folder ?? does anyone know what i need to do ? and if so can you show me how or link me to where it will show me how ?
id also like to know if i should stick with the FC 3 64bit nvidia motherboard and nic drivers or use the ones from nvidia's site ? i imagine they are the same but i might be wrong.
this distro even when installing KDE Gnome and XFCE and a but load of software i never needed but installed anyways installed in roughly 30 min. i was VERY impressed.
this is bar far the best distro ive tried yet, and i hope they keep improving on it.
its not as fast as i'd like so im hoping the raid will make it faster, can anyone help me out ?
(i am a little torqued that i have to go thru a huge amount of poop to get mp3 support. mp3 is free and open source last i heard why isnt it in here ?)
also what is the command to set up your display xf86config dont work
my monitor is only running 60hz blah poop on that,, i need to run a higher refresh rate. even though im still running vesa cuz i cant install the nvidia drivers i remember before i was still able to set up my monitor refresh rates. but i cant find the command to do it now.
control center says its 85 hz but its not, its only 60hz. how can i force 85hz or am i stuck cuz of the lack of nvidia drivers. ?
