ProLiant DL380 G4 (Mandrake 10.1)

Has anyone successfully installed Mandrake 10.1 onto a ProLiant DL380 G4?

I've managed to successfully install the OS, although when booting the system it throws up Kernal Panic error.

If anyone has installed MDK 10.1 onto this particular HP Model I'd appreciate your input in how you managed to get it working.

WAG: Try installing the SMP kernel, not the uniprocessor kernel, even if you're only running one processor in the machine. If you can, stay away from the "community" version, which I've heard has some issues in the SMP arena.

Good luck!

Paul,

Appreciate the reply.

I eventually gave up on MDK 10.1 and moved onto the later incarnation Mandrive LE 2005 (10.2).

This seemed to install without any issues.
