SuSE 9.3 install in ASUS k8s-mx
I am fighting the exact same problem. I'm not sure of the propper way to specify /dev/hdd to the boot loader, but I don't think that matters -- after it fails to find the install CD I go to 'system information' and select "Hard Disks or CD-ROMs" and it says " No hard disk or cd drives detected. If I list DEVICES: It does not list any /dev/hd? devices. I don't see anything that looks familiar. I've tried different IDE 'locations' for the CDROM drive and that doesn't seem to matter.... Primary/Secondary Master/Slave, etc.
Funny It's loosing track of the HDD too! Hmmm... so odd...
Any more ideas?
SuSE 9.3 on Asus motherboard with SiS chipsets
I solved the problem with installing linux on ASUS motherboards with SiS chipsets. Just get a new motherboard!!!! Not kidding. It turned out that the Linux support for SiS chipsets is total crap. (3rd party, the manufacturer (SiS) doesn't write them so they don't work very well and they only work with certain SiS chipsets.. I went with a new motherboard with VIA chipsets (thought Nforce is supposed to have good support for linux too.).
SiS sucks! Never agian!
Linux don't like JMicron IDE Controller
I had the same problem dude. i tried to install suse 10.1 (64) on abit ab9 pro (intel p965) w/ jmicron chip and it can boot up to the dvd just fine but bombs out on the install. stupid me, i tried to copy the install files to another IDE drive and thats when i realized that it was an IDE problem. http://http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hyperm...07.1/1730.html through relentless searches I came to the conclusion that jmicron is not supported under linux (yet). i installed windows just fine but thats not what i really want. i'm tired of there licensing crap.. and they don't have ksokoban so i am abandoning windows once and for all. my next move is doing a network install. wish me luck. i'll post again to tell you guys how it goes.
suse installation on intel p965 ry motherboard
suse or even ubuntu does not recognize the ide cdrom after it the kernel boots
i thought intel 965 motherboard should support linux becuase they have drivers for suse and other distros on their website
