I've been trying to install Fedora core 2 on the new range of PE750's, to no avail, it detects the raid card properly, but at the partitioning part the controller will lock up and not accept any commands (terminal gives a SCSI timeout when deleting partitions)
Fedora core 1 installs properly and works fine, but we're trying to switch to C2 due to the better 2.6 kernel and the EOL C1 now entered. Is there a working driver available for the CERC card that will work with the Fedora C2 install ?, I tried the driver for AS 3 but that won't work..
And of course the solution always pops up AFTER asking on the forums ;)
Basically using the driver disk included in the PE750 download section
Serial ATA: Intel ICH6R, Driver, Enterprise Linux 3, Multi Language, PowerEdge 700, 750, Precision 370, v.0.93c, A04
works for Fedora core 2.., it doesn't autodetect the card, but manually selecting the aacraid and ata_piix drivers after reading the driver disk will succesfully make the card work..
Off to test it :)
Right, it seems to work with the standard 2.6.5 kernel (though a warning beep when activating the swap partition), but updating to the latest 2.6.8 kernel makes the system permanently cry and lock up at activating the swap partitions..
Hereby I dub Fedora C2 not yet suitable for the PE750 ;) (going to try again in a few kernel releases)
