Re: CentOS 4.8 fails to install on Pentium III

It's a software RAID, but I'm not using a fake RAID. As I'm not going to really use it as a server, I think that 7 GB for the system should be OK, but I'm not able to install it even if I install checking "minimal" when selecting packages. I check the DVD once it's booted, but when I check it with t...

Re: CentOS 4.8 fails to install on Pentium III

I don't think the BIOS is updated (it's an old PC), so I'll try to find the last update and apply it. Back to what you said about the IDE driver, might it be related to something I'm doing wrong with the RAID? It's two IDE disks, both 4 GB, so they're old too but I can try to install on a larger dis...

Re: CentOS 4.8 fails to install on Pentium III

I tried installing it in text mode (booting with "linux text"), but it still fails to install it. Formatted correctly the partitions, but it gave me an strange error while installing the system and the packets... I took a picture of the error, which I'm going to upload... I've checked the DVD and al...

Re: CentOS 4.8 fails to install on Pentium III

Thenk you very much , I don't know what I was thinking of... By the way, I'm trying to make a CentOS cluster with several old machines (PIII, AMD K6 and K5, ...) and some of them are i586 which is only supported by CentOS 4.8. Is it better to have the same version of the system in every node or it's...

CentOS 4.8 fails to install on Pentium III

Hi there: though I'm rather new with Red-Hat based systems, such as CentOS, I wanted to install it on an old machine (Pentium III @ 600 MHz, 256 MB RAM), so I downloaded the 4.8 DVD release. I booted it (in the "i586" mode), followed the installer (no problem configurating HDD RAID), but when it sta...
