Yesterday, I tried to install CentOS 7.0 with the default Gnome 3.8 on a Intel NUC (DN2820FYKH, a low cost Celeron, here are the specs : http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ ... 0fykh.html). EDIT : I previously updated the NUC with the latest BIOS released the 05/13/2014, here https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Search ... rodId=3782
I wasn't able to boot with the system with default kernel. After selecting the kernel on the grub menu, it immediately displays an error message [0.000000] tsc : Fast TSC calibration failed (which seems pretty much harmless from what I read on various forums) and a gray screen. Then, it hangs there indefinitely.
I could only boot Centos 7.0 on rescue mode. This time, it displayed the same calibration error message followed by this :
Code: Select all
*ERROR* Cannot initialize the agpgart module. DRM: Fill_in_dev failed.
It makes me wonder :
Is it a kernel issue ? Maybe the 3.10 kernel doesn't really support well the Bay Trail processors.
Or maybe its the Mesa driver fault ?
In both cases, it doesn't seems I can do much about it... Using different kernels or Intel drivers would probably ruin the whole stability advantage of using CentOS...
Has somebody succeeded in running CentOS 7.0 on a similar NUC ?
