    Exclamation I need a Linux compatible MoBo.


    Last week I've tried Suse Linux 10.1 with a ASUS P5VDC-X MoBo.
    Doesn't work at all. I don't get Suse Linux installed.

    So I'm looking for a Linux compatible MoBo to replace the P5VDC-X MoBo. But I want te reuse the 240p DDR2 memory and the P4 775 socket.

    Can someone give me advise? Please help.
    Will the ASUS P5LD2 do the job?

    Regards, Frans

    Hi there and welcome to the forums,

    Can you give us some details about where it may freeze and what happens when you try to install Suse. It helps to give details about your problem.

    When I start installation from the first CD it stops saying: The CD in the drive is not the correct CD. Any action from that point in accessing the CD will fail. Looks like Linux doesn't see the onboard IDE-adapter and the connected CD-drive.

    Yes, it installs normal on a old PII 266Mhz with 128kb.
    So, the CD's are allright.

    Your motherboard looks pretty ok to me. It is very well possible that Suse doesn't like something else (video card, screen, etc.).

    From I can see about your motherboard specifications, it should be very well supported in Linux in general.

    Does Suse displays any error messages ? Have you tryed any other distro ? Did you try to install Suse using special parameters (F1 at the installation prompt for more) ?

    Smile I found a solution

    The error I got was: "Could not find the SUSE Linux Installation CD".

    I found a solution: in manual installation....i manually loaded Generic IDE Host Modules... clicked on kernel module --- > IDE/SATA..... module ---> Generic IDE Host Modules...

    After this Linux was able to access the CD-ROM and installation continued fine.
    I'm writing this reply using Konqueror.

    Only problem I've noticed is the sound. It makes a high pitch sound. Workaround for this moment is to mute the sound.

    well ! this is a problem with chipset. is machine booting up normally now? is it recognizing harddisk and CDROM on boot up?

    Yes, it's booting normally now. But DMA is disabled on IDE-devices.
    I'm looking for a solution to get DMA enabled.
