rhel5 as a guest under hpvm 3.5

Hi I have sucessfully installed RHEL5 under
HPVM 3.5 running on host HPUX v2.

I can only use the text interface.

I cannot startx, due to the msg:

Hi,

The /sbin/lspci | grep -i vga

produce no lines.

issue the command /sbin/lspci will show

00:00.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 07)
00:01.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller
00:03.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82372FB PIIX5 ISA (rev 01)


I just would like to remind you that this is a linux guest running under HPVM

running HPUX v2 and v3 as guests under same host works fine.

Re: rhel5 as a guest under hpvm 3.5

You probably should have put this in the virtualization forum.
But since this is now about Linux, you should really ask there.

Re: rhel5 as a guest under hpvm 3.5

I would suggest you to run

# /usr/sbin/gdm-stop
# /usr/sbin/gdm-binary

if X still failed to run, then try the following
# system-config-display

Re: rhel5 as a guest under hpvm 3.5

thats what I got:

[root@hpvmln01 init.d]# gdm-stop
Can't find the PID file in the configuration file, going to try:
/var/run/gdm.pid
/var/run/gdm.pid doesn't exist, perhaps GDM isn't running
[root@hpvmln01 init.d]# gdm-binary
[root@hpvmln01 init.d]# ps -ef | grep gdm
root 10550 1 0 07:33 ? 00:00:00 gdm-binary
root 10554 1 0 07:33 ? 00:00:00 gdm-binary
root 10588 10550 0 07:33 ? 00:00:00 gdm-binary
root 10592 18254 0 07:33 ttyS0 00:00:00 grep gdm
[root@hpvmln01 init.d]# system-config-display
No video cards were found on this machine, exiting
[root@hpvmln01 init.d]# kudzu
[root@hpvmln01 init.d]#

still no working X.

obviously, /usr/sb/gdm-stop, and/or gdm-binary is useless right now, because the VGA adapter is not detected.

So I think the only command that can do is/will be
'service kudzu start' or just 'kudzu'

ok, did you install the rhel 5 in a text mode ?
did you install with linux noprobe option ?

Yes I installed it in text mode and no I did not use the noprobe mode.
