Re: Alpha Core 3 on XP 1000/Glint driver?

The xorg-glint driver is on CDs. Like I said before, I was expecting the detection of video card and installing the proper xorg driver to be arch independent. I was wrong. Unfortunatelly, the installer itself is hard to debug (or I didn't understand how to do it in easier way) so I left this part to manual installtion.On Tue, 2007-03-13 at 16:35 +0100, Balint Cristian wrote:On Tuesday 13 March 2007 16:21, Dialup Jon Norstog wrote:Personaly i bought for ~30USD an old caddysh plextor and an old 4x writer scsi-matsushita unit. Those never failed anymore, indeed those are _really_ good quality units !Sergey & Cristian, thanks for the hints. I have a bunch of CD drives, including SCSI. Same thing happened way back, installing RH 7.1 from factory stamped CDs. An 8X Cd drive did the job that time. I'll try some of those tricks.My PWS Miata camed equiped with lite-on IDE wich from my experience is a sucky sh*t, even if its brand new ... /cristianTo the list: Text install failed in the same way as graphic. I did then change to my old Sony 8x CDrom drive and got a clean graphical install, first time. I wasn't really able to see what I got with the default installs - the Xserver wouldn't load, apparently the install did not pick up the Glint driver for my 3Dlabs Oxygen VX1 card. I'll either swap out for a Radeon or muck around and see if the driver is in there, or maybe copy it over from my AC2 install on the samemachine.
You could setup local yum repository and there will be no need to download (except for new updated pacckages).My thought is that CD drives, especially IDE or ATAPI are pretty marginal when it comes to transferring large amounts of data error free. Don't feel too bad, Sergei & guys, your disks are still as good as theofficial Red Hat 7.1 boxed set.My choice would be something like a Pioneer/Siemens magneto-optical drive on a wide ultra 80 SCSI bus. Those things are scarce and costly, though. The cartridges alone are $150 each. But they are accurate. Once I get a working Xserver, I may try to download stuff via YUM. Over a dial-up connection.
Thanks for all you work, guys!
