This is my first post here. I usually work with Sun and Solaris but
last week we got a PE 2650, 2 1.8Ghz, 1GB RAM and 2x36 GB RAID 1 that's
running Redhat 7.3.
I installed 8.0 on Tuesday but it crashed the first night so i thought
maybe there was a reason for Dell saying they only support RH up to
7.3. I installed 7.3 followed the instructions and used the server cd.
Everything seemed to work but after a couple of hours it went down
I've done a fast scan of the archives and found the
Bcom_LAN_60_RH73_rpm drivers and the instructions to change.
alias eth0 tg3
alias eth0 bcm5700?
It's still up now but I don't trust it yet.
Anyway I was hoping someone here is running a PE2650 with RH and could
give me the benefits of their experiences.
Some of the stuff I'd like to know is.
What do I need to specially compile inn or make modules of when
building a new kernel?
Is there a url with precompiled kernels for the 2650?
Besides ethernet drivers is there any other drivers I need to get?
And finally can I run RH8.0?
If anyone can help me with these questions it would be a great help and
save me a lot of time.
