It always hangs up at the moment indicated in the headline. On this system RH7.3 has been sucessfully installed (disks are configured for soft morrors), however update of RH8 always fails. The hangup occurs alse when transferring content of CDs to HD space and trying to install from HDD, so this is not the case of bad CD image.

Is this a 440GX based motherboard?
Comment 2 Edward Pilipczuk 2002-12-30 09:39:46 UTC
Available to me documentation does not specify what chipset is used. The baseboard features include: Up to four Central Processor Units (CPUs) (we have 2x 550MHz P5/III with 1MB L2 cache) One memory module holding up to 16 PC/100-compliant registered SDRAM DIMMs supporting up to 8 GB memory (we have 1GB) Integrated SVGA video controller with 2 MB video memory One IDE connector, supporting up to two ATA33 compatible devices (we have one -> TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1402, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive) Eight PCI slots − Two hot-plug PCI slots capable of operating at up to 64-bit, 66 MHz − Four hot-plug PCI slots that operate at 64 -bit, 33 MHz − Two PCI slots that operate at 32-bit, 33 MHz Embedded SCSI controllers supporting dual-channel wide ultra and narrow/wide SCSI - Adaptec AIC-7880 SCSI controller that supports internal devices such as CD- ROM, tape, and DVD drives - Adaptec AIC-7899 Dual-channel Wide 160/m SCSI controller that supports two hot-swap backplanes. Two external USB ports I can send you the log from sucessfull boot of RH7.3 (kernel 2.4.18-3), if it helps you in problem resolution.

The server board is: Intel SRKA4 -> see details at http://developer.intel.com/design/servers/srka4/
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-30 18:22:06 UTC
This is a 440gx based motherboard
Comment 5 Edward Pilipczuk 2003-01-10 09:53:29 UTC
Any hints ?
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2003-01-10 10:01:53 UTC
I'd say stick with 7.3/ 440GX boards aren't fully supportable due to Intel Proprietary information, and in 8.0 they unfortionatly don't work at all.
Comment 7 Alan Cox 2003-06-05 13:23:18 UTC
CANTFIX would be closer. The RH9 errata stuff might help here because we do BIOS fallback for the aic7xxx card to try and work around the info we can't get
Comment 8 Edward Pilipczuk 2003-06-05 13:33:27 UTC
Confirmed, RH9 installer works fine !
