what chipsets are supported by Centos 4.8?

Post by jeepster » 2012/02/11 11:07:36

I know there is a RHEL page listing certified systems, so one could work out from that if you had a lot of time on your hands.
But I would like to know what mainboard chipsets are a goer (provided you have old graphic card and supported ethernet chip et cetera).
Why I am curious is that I can install Oracle linux 4.8 64-bit on an Intel P35 board, and I noticed in the Centos 5 forums that some poor sods could not install that on a P35.
I am told that Oracle improved support for AMD hardware in their releases, and it seems for Intel as well.
Does anybody have a list of northbridge/southbridge chipsets that Centos 4.8 considers friendly?

Just what [url=http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/General?highlight=%28TUV%29#head-d29a2b7e61ffc544973098f9dd49fe4663efba50]TUV[/url] provides; however, it is really a moot point as new installs should not be using CentOS 4.8. The whole series goes [url=http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2011-December/018285.html]EOL[/url] in a matter of days.
