How would one go about this if all your drives are SATAs and you aren't
getting even a whisper of a boot? The Patch-CD recovery doesn't seem to
detect the hard disks (i.e. I cant mount them). The normal Installation does
it without a hitch, but it only allows reinstallation, not repair of
existing systems. Manual install, the only other viable option, locks up
looking for an info file or something.
Very frustrating (especially since I know I'm probably missing something
glaringly obvious again.)
PS If you have/want an AMD 64bit system, stay away from Radeons above 9000,
(especially 9600s, they are the devil).
G-string or thermal underwear? Find out at MSN Weather!
I like to know whether vuescan (a scan program written by Ed Hamrick)
runs on AMD64 and if so, if it runs on 32 Bit Linux or 64 Bit Linux
or both. Unfortunately Ed Hamrick could not answer these questions.
Now, if somebody here owns an AMD64, a scanner (preferably SCSI) and
has some spare time, could he please download the trial version of vuescan
at http://www.hamrick.com/vsm.html und try it? The advantage is that currently
(for a limited time) Ed gives the Standard Version of Vuescan free for personal
use on Linux, so anybody owning a scanner gets a very good scan program for
Thanks a lot

I am very happy to read the announcement that several chipsets SATA should
work. I want to build a new system. I am considering amd64 and amd64fx. It
is not easy to browse MB and figure out which chipsets are on which boards.
Can anyone tell me a MB that will definately work for SATA right now?
Please AVOID sending me WORD, EXCEL or POWERPOINT attachments.
Having 2 Samsung Spinpoint 1613c SATA drives I tried to boot with the new
ISO with that new Kernel.
The new iso boots, but also stopped at Hardware detection / floppy drive
How can I go on ?
Does it make sense to disconnect the SATA drives from the Promise
Controller and connect them to
the VIA supported connecters ? I've got a Asus K8V Mainboard ...
Thank you in advance and sorry for my "rookie" questions. I'm a totally
linux-newbie with the hope to
get out of this XP-World ... ;-)
I am a engineer/programmer (fortran,C++) with some experience in system
admin, but not nearly to the level of the people on this list. I'm
looking into buying a new computer system and would like the opinion of
someone on this list how difficult they think it would be to set up with
Suse. I've used numerous versions of Mandrake before and am now
looking to try something better. I've never compiled a kernel or added a
patch before, but would not be afraid to try it. Mostly, I'm worried
about 3D accelerated video card support for some of the graphics intense
applications I run.
OK, here's the computer (from www.hypersonic-pc.com). It's an AMD64
