Soyo SY-KT600 Plus V2.0


Soyo SY-KT600 Plus V2.0 is what I set up for my wife. It is running MDK 10.1 Official. Originally it had an Nvidia video card in it but I switched to a ATI Radeon card. It works great. Less issues than with the Nvidia based card. Her Soyo SY-KT600 Plus V2.0 runs excellent, is extremely fast using the AMD 3200 processor, and has never given any problems at all. If you check the Soyo web site it states that all of it's motherboards are 100% linux compatable. Not very many mobo manufacturers make that statement. That indicates that every chipset on it has been checked and has linux drivers. My guess would be that the video card is not completly linux supported using the new Xorg drivers. That is why the configuration is not completing.

Re: Soyo SY-KT600 Plus V2.0

Yes can you please post what Opjose has asked? I am sure my issue is probably with my card, so you feel if I changed my card out to an ATI that would resolve my problems?

Thanks for your post....

I don't think so because I could not install it. I could never get to desktop and what you were saying about your video card made a lot of sense.

Do you not get the NVIDIA splash screen? I am not sure what ATI cards have.


thanks....d-1

Not using the ATI card. ATI has it's own chipset while NVIDIA has it's own chipset. Only the Nvidia chipset with the Nvidia drivers will give the Nvidia splashscreen. My brother is using a similar (Soyo Dragon V-1) mobo with AMD and is running an Nvidia 5700 Ultra (super wicked video card) with no problems at all. He is running wine and loading M$ games and running them under opengl and they run as fast and with at least as good of graphics as they run under M$. In fact, he likes everything so well he decided to wipe M$ completely from his drive and run nothing but MDK 10.1.

My computer is a Dell Precision 530 w/dual xeon processor and over 1 gig memory so I have to run the smp kernel with large ram support. I think the smp kernel I am running has a few problems because my install does not work nearly as well an my brother and my wife's. I personally installed all 3 from the same disks. They have no problems at all and everything works as it is supposed to. Mine, however, has issues. Wine does not work correctly for one. Mozilla does not keep up with where I have been or with passwords. Just a few little anoying things. Neither my brother nor my wife has these issues. That is why I think the problem may lie in the smp kernel.

Your card with the Nvidia chipset may not have other linux supported chipsets. My brother's is manufactured by XFX, which tells on their website that it is !00% linux supported. Not all cards with the Nvidia chipset are well supported by linux. Especially generic versions. I happened to know that the radeon I put in my wife's was supported by linux because I have a friend with one made by the same company (my wife's is exactly the same brand, version, and model) and he had no problems when he installed 10.1. There should be no problems with using the Nivia chipset video cards as long as you use one that is completely supported by linux. This computer I am running uses an Nvidia chipset. It is an Nvidia Quadro. It is not made for gaming though. It is made for Cad/Cam.

To: dolphans1,

From his dump it's obvious that Maintech DOES NOT have an nforce chipped motherboard, even though it's the same make as yours.

His is VIA equipped and fully supported by Linux, while your nforce board is not getting kernel modules loaded to support it.

That is why he had success but you did not.

I guess I missed the part where he has an nforce chipped motherboard. That went right over my head. I guess I should have googled his motherboard and looked at what he has.

I know the MDK Club download sites have nforce kernel modules made for the nforce motherboard. Maybe that is what he needs. Unfortunately they are all of the 2.4.25.2 variety. All I see listed are for the 2.4 kernels. Or, if you are not a club member you can download one from Nvidia here : http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0261. Hope that helps.

Solution Finally

Dear Opjose,

Here's what I did to finally get Mandrake 10.1 Official DVD ISO installed on my Soyo Motherboard Board.

1- In configuration part of Installation it showed 2 items that were not configured:
a) my graphics card
b) my eto network card

For graphics drivers I selected Xorg> then selected nv. I then selected generic for my monitor.

Mandrake 10.1 Official finally installed for the very 1st time and I was finally able to boot to my desktop. The only problem I had was with my eto Network card, which I never had a problem installing this card in the past. But this time it gave me royal fits and I am not sure why. I messed around with my Network configuration 3X times and nothing worked. I ran ifconf to see if I could locate any possible signs of problems because Network would install but still showed broken in system tray at the bottom of the screen no matter what I did.

So I ran ifconfig in SU mode and it did not show my IP address, I also ran ifconfig -a and nothing.

I went to boot-loader and selected force-no-apic and rebooted and still could not get onto the internet.

I then booted in Windows XP to get into ipconfig (I have a dual boot pc). I was trying to get my DNS number and subnet mask number from Windows side to install my network card in manual mode with Mandrake 10.1 Official. When I rebooted back into Mandrake somehow my internet connection problem was fixed. I am not sure if rebooting my pc solved my Network connection setting problems or if selecting force-no-apic solved it. I did try to restart xserver once before, and even rebooted so setting would take place. So it's a mystery as to what was going on here with my Network card. As I've stated, I never had an issue in the past installing my eto card. It's one of the easiest things to configure.

Now to set up Xorg ? I reinserted my DVD ISO. Went to Konsole>su>urpmi.addmedia xorg6.8 removable://mnt/cdrom2/xorg-6.8 with ./hdlist.cz

Since my DVD was mounted I ran this command>urpmi.addmedia xorg6.8 removable://mnt/cdrom/xorg-6.8 with ./hdlist.cz

Then: I ran urpmi xorg-x11-6.8.1

**Someone I know gave me advice with this-said Xorg can be a little buggy**


Now to set NVIDIA drivers, I went to Mandrake Control Center>Hardware>Grapics card>clicked on Configuration tool. It showed Custom and I clicked on it and selected Geforce4generic. Actually it was already highlighted and I proceeded.

I restarted Xserver and saw NVIDIA splash screen and ran glxgears:
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS

That was it. NVIDIA splash screen works and Mandrake 10.1 Official finally installed on my Soyo KT Dragon Motherboard and works flawlessly, even screenworker and sound works. Finally solved and tackled!
