    Default Questions for Redhat 9.0 users

    Hello,

    I'm hoping to get some answers from people who bought
    the cheapest version of Redhat 9 and installed it
    from the CDs.

    I'm having an awful time with my Redhat Advanced server,
    and thinking I might be able to use the rpms from Redhat 9.

    1)
    Did the GUI install cleanly with no problems? Did it
    work with your video card? Or, did you have to
    download drivers and install them? Which brand
    and model of Video card do you use?

    2)
    Which kernel is it?

    uname -r

    3)
    Which version of XFree86 got installed?

    rpm -qa | grep -i XFree

    It will be one of: 4.1, 4.2, or 4.3.

    4)

    On the CDs, do you have the source rpms
    (*.src.rpm) for:

    XFree86
    kernel

    Or, is it strictly the binaries? (*.rpm)

    5)
    What video driver are you using?
    Are you using agpgart?

    cat /etc/X11/XF86config-4 | grep -i driver

    (I'm assuming that your file is in the same path,
    but if not, find it with:

    find / -type f -name XF86Config-4
    )


    lsmod | grep -i agpgart


    6) Bonus question. If you have an ATI
    Radeon card, please include the file:
    /etc/X11/XF86config-4

    Thanks a lot for all your help!

    You seem to have lots of questions?

    However, installation of ES 3.0 on a desktop was no problem, but
    then you got support for one year with AS, ask RH. The packages
    for AS/ES seem to be almost the same. Wouldn't use rpms from RH 9
    they are probably linked against other versions of glibc/etc, you
    should check.
    Hint:
    man ldd
     

    Unsure, some kind of built-in Intel 815?
     

    Some RH version of 2.4.21.

    Shouldn't RH support be able to help you?
     

    Yes, yes, yes, Geforce3
     

    2 and 3 can be answered by checking RH's ftp site or some mirror.
     

    Probably not on retail disks, but you can download them.
     

    The kernel sources to build and install (not rpm) are on the distro disk
    in a package called kernel-source-2.4.[...].rpm.
