Gentus Linux - BE6

Gentus Linux - BE6

Post by jigg » Thu, 02 Mar 2000 04:00:00

I have downloaded this iso image and copied to CD.  While trying to
install the program stops when it is probing my hardware.  I think it
stops when it gets to IDE2 where my hard drive is.  Anybody have
suggestions on how to get this to work?

1. Has anybody tried Gentus-Linux from Abit?

I did.  Gentus 6.1 (RedHat w/ a few mods) and Gentus 3.0.
They were ok, but not much more than RedHat.

I now use a Mandrake 7.1.  Works fine out of the box, and
there are patches on the web.  Search "abit linux" with Yahoo
or some such.  

I use an unpatched 2.4.0-test2 kernel right now.  No problems.  
I don't use the ATA66, but there is support for the HPT366 driver
in the kernel.  Don't know how well it works.  

There is also an Abit BP6 mailing list.  Worth joining, perhaps.
