Problems with Red Hat Linux 9.0 after switching motherboard


A few days ago the motherboard of my Linux server got damaged after a power surge. The motherboard that did get damaged was a EagleMax AMD K2. I decided to try to replace this motherboard with the a Asus K2 motherboard. After installing everything I started the server and everything seemed to go well, but after the message: Finding Module dependencies [OK] it didn't do anything.

My question is if some of you have tried this too and/or got a solution to this problem? Or is the only option to reinstall Red Hat 9.0?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I tried to do the same some days ago, replacing my CPU & motherboard though . Do you still use the same chip set? I suggest you reinstall anyway (that solved it for me - i couldn't recompile my kernel, weird error messages and stuff like that, but it seemed like my hardware was getting recognised correctly).
Do a
# dmesg
# lspci
to find out if your hardware is recognised correctly. Maybe that sheds some light.
