install SuSE Linux on an AMD K6-2 300 with a Microstar MI-5169 (rev 2)
motherboard. I also tried installing Red Hat 5.1 with this setup and
the installation program crashed with segmentation faults about
at the point where it's supposed to say 'entering stage 2 of install'
(or something similar).
I then tried swapping the AMD chip with a GenuineIntel Pentium 166
and the installation runs smoothly.
Btw, win98 installed and runs without any apparent problems with both
I am beginning to think the motherboard is bad (I replaced the AMD for
another AMD with same results, replaced the RAM (with certified
PC100 RAM (appears on an Intel list) etc. without any luck), or that
the combination of parts is just not stable for Linux.
Right now I am planning to get an Asus
super socket 7 motherboard and try the AMD again...
Any input appreciated, I would really like to hear from people with
similar problems - what is your configuration? (CPU, MB etc.).
