10.2 installing on HP proliant DL385


Trying to install opensuse10.2 on dl385 machine. It has smart array p410 controller. But installation cant find any disks “no hard disks found”. HP has driver cciss-3.6.20-20.sles10 but it is for older kernel than 10.2 version has. How i can solve this problem? I need 10.2 version on this server.

You’re not. Now, tell us why you need 10.2?

I cannot imagine any credible reasons for installing it anymore.

The specification of one specific application, wich support suse 10 sp2. So i need 10.2 version.

You have your things mixed up - you’re referring to the enterprise version, SLES 10 with Service Pack 2, not openSUSE 10.2.

Wrong OS, you need SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 (SLES10 SP2)

You can get a 60 day evaluation key as well. If you have issues the

Application supports just 9 or 10 version of Suse. Customer cant buy commercial version of suse. So we want use openSuse 10.2. I still dont know how to solve this raid controller problem.

Well 10.2 is way out of support. Run 11.2 and run 10.2 in a virtualized

I cant do it, because it will be compute node, the application will use 12core at one time.

you are not listening!

SLES 10 SP2 is NOT the same as openSUSE 10.2

the customer can purchase SLES 10 SP2 or not, that we can’t help with…

trying to install openSUSE 10.2 we also can’t help with as that

perhaps your customer should seek “one specific application” which is
NOT tied to “suse 10 sp2”.

what is the application and why oh why does it depend on ONE version
of ONE distribution???


If your app can only use openSuse 10.2 just because of kernel 2.6.18, you can try to use RHEL5.5 instead.

RHEL5.5 uses kernel 2.6.18 and should be more less the same as kernel 2.6.18 in openSuse 10.2
