centos 5.5 x64 bit issues on sun blade X6270 SERVER MODULE
 
Dear All,



I have managed perfectly fine to install centos 5.5 x64 on a new sun blade x6270 server module .i had to install in text mode since GUI install mode was not working



Actually this machine is going to replace my current working very low hardware server

the server is used as my primary dns, mail server , webmail server also running Mailscanner, mailwatch etc.

Also I want to use this new sun blade server as a virtual machine using xen



i have installed xen and uts fine



but i have a issue with the diplay driver



I did run system-config-network and selected the card as ast-ASpeedTech chipsets since my lspci says i have a

20:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ASPEED Technology, Inc. ASPEED Graphics Family (rev 10)



now I run startx and i get the below error

Ok, so the driver in /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/ is actually a 32-bit
driver, not a 64 bit one. Something's wrong there, and that shouldn't
happen.

Try deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and then fire up system-config-display.
Let it generate a completely new one. Then you might look at that file in
your favorite editor, and see if it makes sense.

Unless you've got more than one monitor, it should have one monitor, one
screen, and one videocard.

What does it say about 64 bit systems? As I said, it sounds like you've
got the driver in the wrong directory. You might check for the driver in
the 32-bit directory, and what does file say about it? You REALLY, REALLY
need to get the right proprietary driver in the right place.

Where's the monitor section?
For example, mine has a stanza
Section "Monitor"
### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Unknown"
ModelName "DELL 2007FP"
HorizSync 30.0 - 83.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 76.0
EndSection

which is not right for yours, unless you happen to have the same make and
model monitor, but there ought to be one.

<snip>
> Section "Device"
> Identifier "Videocard0"
> Driver "vesa"
> EndSection
>
> Section "Screen"
> Identifier "Screen0"
> Device "Videocard0"

This ought to have a line like below.
Monitor "Monitor0"

> DefaultDepth 24
> SubSection "Display"
> Viewport 0 0
> Depth 24
> EndSubSection
> EndSection

Please stop replying directly to me - keep it onlist, so others can jump in.
