RHEL AS on Itanium problem

Hi:

I'm testing one RHEL AS 3 for Itanium in my old zx2000, but X server crashes. I have one NVidia Quadro4 900 XGL. Somebody have the same problem?

Best regards,
-Adriano

Have you try to download de nvidia drivers for your graphic card?

Re: RHEL AS on Itanium problem

Thank you, but new problem:
"Error in check sums" when I try to install the driver. It seems like NVidia's problem.

Because I try download/install four times and doesn't work. :-(

Hi Adriano,
When do you get the checksum error?

Is it when you execute sh driver.run, or at more avanced stage?

Frank.

Linux?. Yes, of course.

Re: RHEL AS on Itanium problem

Exactly when I run sh driver.run.

I finally can execute the script but report that the kernel and the module are not compatible and try to obtain a new kernel from NVidia site. Again unsucessfull. :-(

Re: RHEL AS on Itanium problem

If xconfigurator and hardware detection is not successful, you have two choices in my mind:

1) Get a different video card(http://partsurfer.hp.com)

2) Get drivers from the card builder.

Did you check with HP's website with regards to RHEL AS 3 support on thix box. If its not supported, my advice is forget about it.

THe video driver is at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?pnameOID=82076&locale=en_US&taskId=135&prodSeriesId=82074&prodTypeId=12454&swEnvOID=1100

Fairly simple search on the HP website. Posted April 2004.
