Re: SSH Fauils after Update

One more thing. I have a second server with the same issues. Same MOBO. SM H8DAR-i. The only thing different from my other servers in this class is an upgrade to a 3GB/s WD drive and a 3Ware 9550SX-BBU RAID controller. I doubt this is the IP issue.

Should I break tsis out into two issues?

SSH Fauils after Update

I installed CentOS 6.1 minimal using a CD. I checked the system for functionality and all appeared well. Both NIC's could access the internet and be accessed as a server. I did a yum update and after completion neither NIC could access or be accessed. I tried a service network restart without succes...

Re: 6.x Skips Text/GUI Choice and Forces GUI

First, a sincere thank you to Avij for getting me to this point. Somehow I missed that the text based installer was gone and each time I saw the graphic based installer I wrongly assumed that an error was occurring and I was being forced to installed the desktop GUI. I am now clear on this. My last ...

Re: 6.x Skips Text/GUI Choice and Forces GUI

I AM CONFUSED!!! v6.0 let me create a custom layout. I am using a 3ware AMD 9550SXU-BBU RAID controller and it found it just fine.

Re: 6.x Skips Text/GUI Choice and Forces GUI

OK, I may have misinterpreted something in your text, but so did you. My most important point was Using the GUI installer does not mean that the installed system would also have a GUI. That depends on which packages you select during installation. I don't know for certain what that "Error 127 mdadm...

Re: 6.x Skips Text/GUI Choice and Forces GUI

One more thing. The installer IS initially coming up in text mode and asking me if I'd like to check the CD's. I choose SKIP and then the screen pauses for about 1 minute until finally I am presented with the GUI. I have gone through the setup just as I would text based, setting the RAID partitions ...

6.x Skips Text/GUI Choice and Forces GUI

I have spent hours and hours trying to get 6.x 64-bit installed on a server without success. It continues to skip past the linux text choice for a server and forces a GUI installation that fails with a Error 127 mdadm. I have other exact servers that have not done this. This server WILL let me insta...

Re: Unable to install 6.7 using Net Install

I didn't think so after more than 100 installs :-( The WD RE4 drive is the Western Digital WD RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive (because I still have cases of them) running in RAID1 but this server may go RAID5. Not the newest, but not...
