Default Motherboards

Anyone with experience and Debian-related information on motherboards by DFI
and by Winsonic? Apparently of the few which support modern CPU and memory and
still sport as ISA slot or two.

I run Debian Lenny on a DFI Lanparty DK p45-t2rs. I really like the
board but it did throw a curveball at me. Since it had an Intel ICH10R
southbridge, I expected it to have an Intel ICH storage controller and
use the ata_piix driver. This was not the case, instead, it used a
Jmicron storage controller (using the ahci driver) which forced me into
using the kmuto installer and the lenny-backports kernel.


Other than that, I think its great.

Hello,

I might be wrong, but I guess the exact name for your motherboard is DFI
Lanparty DK p45-t2rs PLUS (as opposed to the Elite or Turbo models),
which has 8 SATAII ports, and I also guess you have used the two yellow
ports? If so, plug your drives in the orange ports to use the Sata
controller from the ICH10R and not the JMicron JMB363 (given the vast
amount of options traditionnally present in a DFI LanParty BIOS, you can
probably disable the JMicron controller if you want to do so).


The ICH10R only provides 6 SATAII ports, and the JMicron controller is
there to provide 2 additionnal ports.

Yes, the PLUS is the correct model. I will have to look into it again,
but I have 3 drives so they could not all be in the two yellow ports.
This may also explain why fdisk lists my drives in the order: sdc, sdb,
sda. Running lspci -k, I don't recall seeing ata_piix at all.


Thanks for the input, I will have another look tonight.

Hi all,

I am wondering what motherboards users are using on there Linux box?
I had a Asus m4a79t delux but in corroded under 2 years and failed.
Asus blames the customer oxidation and will not give warranty even
though it has 3 years warranty.
Strange how a old p5 Intel machine beside it is perfectly fine.
Asus warranty not worth the paper its written on.
Have a Asus crosshair V formula that spent more times being repaired
than been used.
It still comes up with eprom errors on boot and runs like a dog and Asus
will not give money back as they say they do not support Linux.
So we have proved that this brand is crap, what else is there?

Am looking at the Gigabyte ga-990fxa-d3, does this board play well with
Linux as looking at putting it in what was the m4a79t box.

Thanks
Gary.

Not sure which motherboard my laptop has, (Gateway T-Series T6321
model!) but it's already been through installations of Linux MInt,
PearOS, Ubuntu, and CEntOS, until I finally decided upon Fedora, and I
haven't had any problems since, and this is a used laptop whom the owner
was just going to throw away! Now it's my number one machine! (out of
three!) So maybe there's some trught in what you say, a friend of mine
HAD a newer Asus laptop he got from WalMart, and after the first 7
months it went belly up for (strangely enough!) a power issue!

I don't quite understand your problem. I don't want to judge here "which
motherboard is better" because it really depends on your needs. If I
asked you what hard drive is better for me to use with Linux, what would
you tell me? Today, the only piece of hardware that Linux users must be
careful when buying is video card and sometimes sound card. Other
hardware is well supported.

I have had good experiences with Gigabyte mainboards the last 5 years,
both with regards to Linux compatibility and quality.
