Could you grab a recent fedora devel kernel and retest?


Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2007-07-12 14:10:30 EDT
Mehmet, you can grab a kernel from one of the sites listed here:


Install the kernel rpm package and reboot -- does your system boot?


Comment 3 Mehmet ALLAR 2007-07-13 05:59:36 EDT
nope, my system does not boot yet, because i couldn't hve installed Fedora yet .
The installer (anaconda) does not detect my raid drives on this south bridge ,
so i can't install Fedora. I need an updated re-spin of the DVD , or rescue CD
Comment 4 Prarit Bhargava 2007-07-17 09:39:33 EDT
boot.iso from here should work ftp://fedora.bu.edu/fedora/development/x86_64/os

Comment 5 Prarit Bhargava 2007-07-17 09:44:59 EDT
WFM with latest fedora, kernel-2.6.23-0.15.rc0.git1.fc8.x86_64.rpm .  As
previously mentioned, upstream had a lot of SB600 churn.

> boot.iso from here should work ftp://fedora.bu.edu/fedora/development/x86_64/os
> P.

it did not . the new boot.iso refused working, it hangs in the options screen ,
where F1/F2 and so on can be selected/pressed . 

and new FC8 kernel installation on FC7 also did not work , it freezes where it
loads the kernel in the boot up . (on normal ide installation for testing) 
Comment 7 Mehmet ALLAR 2007-07-31 03:14:06 EDT
just as a side note : to my surprise , Fedora 7 (32 bit ) version installation
recogized disks on Ati SB600 controller, but seperately. and deleted my data on
the disks with wrong clicking, due to invalid partition table it couln't
recognize . It detects the disks on the controller , but does not support bios
raid function .
