Re: regarding linux installation

Shalom,

Showing some error?

Read the error message, type it into this thread and then maybe someone can help you.

So long as you don't try and install Linux onto an already existing LVM owned disk, you can dual boot your rx6600 system, though I see no reason to use such a powerful system in this way.

Are you sure you are using 64 bit ia64 Linux? What distribution of Linux?

Re: regarding linux installation

Hi,

As SEP said, are you sure you're using the right version of Linux...?

For RedHat there are a number of different releases:

i386 = 32 bit
x86_64 = 64 bit for AMD64 and Intel EM64T
ia64 = 64 bit for Itanium

Cheers,

Rob
