Adventures with FC7T3



Here are results of installs on a few machines.

telnetd - where did it go?  installing legacy network
servers mentions telnet but doesn't result in telnetd.

Asus P4C800 Deluxe P4, ATI AIW 9600
Generally smooth install, some items missing.
Anaconda detected the motherboard ethernet but
not a PCI wireless card.  Kernel detected the 
PCI wireless board and gave it the settings meant 
for the ethernet.

Asus P5B-E Core Duo 6400
x86_64 graphics and text install both freeze when transferring
install image to HD.  This is after a successful mkfs.

i386 installs.  Installer and kernel detect the Atansic
ethernet.

Asus A8N-E: a real joyride
This system has 3 IDE HD, IDE DVD, 1 SATA HD.  After language
selection, installer could not see the IDE DVD.  Sabayon 3.3
did not have any difficulty loading from the IDE DVD.  So I
had to use an USB DVD.

Graphical install scrambled the screen oa PCI ExpressNvidia 6600.
Plugging the CRT into the other display connector
took care of this.  Note that previously Linux did not care
which connector was used, including Sabayon 3.3 install.

The Nvidia 9755 run file produced a defective server that
would not run.  Both 32 and 64 bit.  I loaded the x86-64
flavor first, gave up, then loaded thei386 FC7T3.

A number of packages I thought would be loaded weren't.

I was not able to get Samba to serve most of my drives.
When the two month old ethernet reliabilty problem 
reared its head I gave up and changed the BIOS back to
booting good olde 2869.
