Linux Kernel on D945GCLF

Read below for info on recent experience of Linux installation to D945GCLF :

Reported by Derek J –

Problem was

Running Mandriva 2008.1. Install worked ok, but on rebooting kernel panic when probing Ethernet port.

Solution was :-

1/ Disable Ethernet in Bios

2/ Boot now works OK

3/ Put alternative kernel 2.6.24.7-tmb-desktop-2mdv from the Mandriva online ‘contrib’ sources on USB Flash stick 4/cd to the Flash stick and Install the new kernel with ‘urpmi kernel-2.6.24.7-tmb-desktop-2mdv.i586.rpm’ command 5/ Shutdown and re-enable Ethernet in Bios 6/ Reboot. All works OK
