Linux Lenny on DL785G5

Hi.

Was wondering if any of you have already installed Linux Lenny on the Proliant DL785G5? The memory detected after OS installation is just 900MB but server memory config is 32GB. Does this mean that the OS is not supported yet?

Thanks.

Re: Linux Lenny on DL785G5

Debian 'lenny' beta install has issues with hardware devices on the DL785G5. Not to worry as you can get and install Sidux http://www.sidux.com/. Eventhough some of the packages are from the unstable tree 'sid' enough care has been taken by the sidux upstream packagers. An amd64 iso image is available.

If you have the linux-image-2.6-486 kernel installed, you might want to try a 64-bit kernel.

# apt-get install linux-image-2.6-amd64
