I have one of those mother boards with an 2.4 Athlon XP CPU, it had 5.1 on it,
( I was experimenting with software / hardware raid). Hope to find the time
to put some more hard drives into it this weekend and put 5.2 on it and set
it up as my central home file storage server. It never had a problem with
shutting down with 5.1, I will report any problems / success after I have
installed. It has had a few bios updates since I got it a few years ago. I
also have an older AMD K6 550 MHz machine running Mandriva Linux and that had
a problem shutting down with the latest version of Mandriva installed.

Bonjour,

While I installed fglrx module for ATI video card, I was unable to have
X display working correctly until I disabled selinux.

What's wrong?

thanks.
