Default centos on ebox

There is currently no serverCD for CentOS 5.1, but you can install from
just the first CD if that helps. See here:

http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/CentOS5#head-c79c201900d22f163a445f134fcc6c916eb3cb6e




I grabbed the first CD and tried booting. no luck at this point.



I am trying to install centos i386 on a ebox 2300 unit.

This unit has a vortex86 CPU.

When installing the unit finds the USB cdrom I type "linux text" and it
starts

vlinuz...

init....

Screen goes black and the unit reboots.



I also tried with acpi=off.



Any ideas on getting anaconda to come up on this ebox unit?



Jerry

Sounds like an i586 CPU which is not supported by CentOS 5. You'd
probably have better luck with CentOS 4.

Cheers,

Ralph,



I thought if it is a 586 CPU it should run 386 code right?

So I didnt think there should be an issue there...



I can see not being able to run 586 code on a 386 but the other way
around should be ok.



Jerry

you won't make it with only 128 MB of RAM...
is the cpu i686 compatible?

Tru,

yes this is the box I am trying to install on...

I dont know if its i686, either way I thought i386 should work. I am I
wrong?


Is it the 128M memory issue? I thought I used to install with that much
- especially in text mode.


Any suggestions.

Jerry

yes, the i686 has some additionnal instructions that a i586 does not
have. I have no idea about the cpu listed there.

Try C4 with the i586 or i686 (default) version. You will be fixed.
C5 does not support i586 class cpu. There was a thread about it
some days/weeks ago. Not much volonteer to do/support it and the
CentOS team has other priorities .

it's below the minimal recommended size (256MB). It may work, I haven't tried.

Cheers,

Tru

None of the RHEL branches support any processors that are < i686 for the
i386 arch.


CentOS supports i586 in centOS-3 and CentOS-4 (things not in RHEL) ..
and only i686 in CentOS-2 and CentOS-5 (just like RHEL).


So, NO ... and i586 processor will not run CentOS-5.


Is it the 128M memory issue? I thought I used to install with that much

Any suggestions.


doing some research ... this is a pentium mmx compatible chip, which is
i586 ... you can use CentOS-4 on there.

I just tried my old centos 4.4 i386 disk 1
did "linux text mem=128M" and the same thing.
after vmlinuz.., and initrd... it just resets.

Am I not boot with the correct options to get the 386 kernel and its
trying to use the 686 kernel?


Thanks,

Jerry

when I do "i586 text mem=128" it says cant find kernel
so I do "linux i586 text mem=128" and I get the same behavior
Loading vmlinuz....
Loading initrd....
and reboot.

Am I not correctly specifying the kernel yet?
