Description alexotti 1999-09-04 12:18:08 UTC
I've always had some problems on installing any kind of
RedHat version on my PC. Sometime it works, but most of the
times something goes wrong.
I think I heve some problem Configuration concerning my
Hardware, I Have AHA3940U/UW and a very bad HD.... .

During the installation this message error occurs (more or
less) ".. can't find Kernel-source-2.2.5-15.i386.rpm
on....". I found the latest distribuition on an italian
magazine in june '99....

One last thing: if the installation goes fine at further
boot time Linux find my file system with errors and check it
forced..... and it fails.....

Sorry for bothering, I hope to be helped..... maybe changing
controllers and HD???


PS: windows works....

we have no way of knowing if the italian magazine version is good or
not (it may be corrupted).  It is not the official red hat distributed
by us either via CD or ftp site, so we can't support it or even look
into problems with it.

Adapted 2940/3940 controllers are well supported.
